Steiger Family Education Grant
The Steiger Family Education Grant recognizes an outstanding Jewish day school teacher by providing an opportunity for Judaic study. Up to $2500 will be awarded to help cover tuition and travel expenses. The educational experience must be approved by the JEC Director of Professional Development and the Steiger Family. The recipient must use the award within a four-year period.
Any teacher (secular or Judaic studies) in a JEC affiliated school with a minimum of three years’ experience and a commitment to future day school teaching is eligible for nomination. The teacher must display a positive impact on students as a role model.
This is a director nominated award. A confidential written letter of nomination from the supervisor, to demonstrate teaching excellence and overall contribution to the school, is required. Each nominee must have a classroom observation and may be interviewed by a selection committee.
