The Phyllis Arnold Professional Development Awards are an annual subsidy that will help Canadian teachers to participate in conferences or professional development courses in geography or social studies.

Phyllis Arnold received the 2001 Geographic Literacy Award from CG Education, and used her award, along with a personal donation, to create the Phyllis Arnold Endowment Fund. Teachers across Canada can apply for a Phyllis Arnold Professional Development Award to facilitate their work in the classroom, school, district, and community. Applications are accepted yearly in the spring from any current teacher in an accredited K-12 school within Canada.

Amounts and Deadlines
Each year, CG Education grants up to two awards ($300 in personal subsidies) to assist in the participation of geographic or social studies professional development in the current calendar year.

Applications must be received by close of business (5 P.M. ET) May 1st. Awards will be announced by June 1st.

Application Guidelines and How to Apply
Applications must be sent to CG Education, briefly explaining the professional development opportunity. In order to be eligible for an Arnold award each applicant must be a member of CG Education . Applications will be given favourable consideration if they can demonstrate the willingness to replicate learning in the classroom situation.

Every application must be filled in completely and must be sent to:

Canadian Geographic Education
Suite 200, 1155 Lola Street
Ottawa (Ontario) K1K 4C1
NOTE : Applications may also be faxed to (613) 744-0947 or emailed to info@ccge.org

Selection Process
Each application will be reviewed by Canadian Geographic Education against the requirements outlined in these guidelines and for clarity. CG Education will assess applications that meet initial requirements and make recommendations for funding subsidies. It is expected that final decisions will be made within four weeks of the application deadline.

Reporting
Acceptance of an Arnold Professional Development Award requires the applicant to pursue geographic professional development during the application year. Recipients are later required to submit a very brief summative report (no more than 200 words) detailing the professional development attended and how they intend to implement the strategies they will learn into the classroom.
