The AP Fellows program is an annual competitive grant program that provides scholarships for high school teachers from schools serving minority or low-income students who have been traditionally underrepresented in AP courses. The $1,000 scholarships assist teachers with the cost of attending an AP Summer Institute. Their deadline to apply for the scholarship is February 15; however they can apply to an APSI at any time.

AP Opportunity Programs Scholarships
The College Board received a grant from the Michael and Susan Dell Foundation to increase the number of AP courses in schools with the most unmet student potential and financial need. One component of the grant is providing professional development for teachers through AP Summer Institute attendance. Please note that this scholarship is for teachers that have no other source of funding and covers the cost of tuition only. Districts and/or schools are responsible for travel, lodging, and graduate credit costs. Payment to AP Summer Institutes will be provided by the same procedure as other AP scholarships paid by the College Board. Outreach efforts through direct email campaign to teachers and administrators were completed March 31. The deadline for teachers to register with an APSI and return the letter of commitment is April 30.

AP Redesign Scholarships
The College Board has raised funds to pay for a limited number of AP Chemistry and Spanish Language and Culture teachers to attend an AP Summer Institute this summer. The redesigned courses will be taking effect in the 2013-14 academic year and many teachers are interested in attending professional development programs this summer. But cuts to district and school professional development budgets are preventing some teachers from attending. Please note that this scholarship is for teachers that have no other source of funding. Teachers will be notified directly about this opportunity via email. Applications are accepted until April 30 and teachers will register for APSIs after that deadline. If you have any questions about this program, please contact APRedesignPD@collegeboard.org.
AP STEM Access program
An initiative created by Google, DonorsChoose.org, and the College Board to increase the number of traditionally underrepresented minority and female high school students who participate in AP courses in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math). This grant will provide each participating school with "start-up" funding for the classroom resources, educational materials, and teacher professional development typically needed to start one or more new AP math and science courses. Up to 500 participating teachers will receive a full-tuition scholarship to attend an APSI across the U.S. Their deadline to register for an APSI is March 28 and we ask that APSI Directors submit the Online Certification form by April 10 to ensure timely payment. Visit AP STEM Access program for more information or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
California Advanced Placement Expansion (CAPE) program
The College Board, in partnership with California Senator Ed Hernandez (D-West Covina), DonorsChoose.org, and Innovate Foundation launched the California Advanced Placement Expansion (CAPE) program to fund professional development and additional educational materials for teachers to start AP courses in 200 public schools in California for academically prepared and motivated students. Again this year, CAPE teachers will receive full-tuition scholarships to attend an APSI, most likely in California. Their deadline to register for an APSI is March 30. Details available on CAPE. Questions can be sent to CAPE@collegeboard.org.
