Grants

Grants are a great way for Teachers to get extra money for their classrooms or to travel to conferences for Professional Development that would otherwise be out of their reach. Below you will find a list of grants that are available to members of the NSTU.

Professional Development Assistant Fund (PDAF)

The PDAF Fund is a great way to help teachers be innovative in their classrooms. Teachers need to have their application in by the first day of February, April, June, August, October, and December. You can find out more by checking out the PDAF Grant overview here on the main NSTU Website.

Full-Time Study Grant

For Teachers who wish to take a Full-Time Program of Studies, a grant is available from the NSTU to help out with costs. Each year the NSTU awards five grants of $2000 each. The application can be found here on the main NSTU Website.

Out-of-Province Conference Grant

Teachers who wish to travel outside of Nova Scotia to a Conference for Professional Development can apply for a grant to help out with the costs. The application and further information can be found here on the main NSTU Website.
