The International Travel Program provides opportunities for members to interact with colleagues abroad, learn about schooling in other nations, and sample the culture in various countries. As the world becomes increasingly interconnected, educators facing common challenges can learn much from sharing ideas and debating policies with their counterparts in other countries through this professional development program.
International Travel Scholarships
In 1980 Gerald and Vickie Read created an endowment that provides scholarships for members to participate in in the PDK travel program. PLT members, PDK members, and FEA adult advisers may apply for one of these scholarships to help offset the cost of the international study tours.
We are no longer accepting scholarship applications for the October 2013 Dublin/London study tour.
Open enrollment for this trip will begin June 3, after all scholarships have been awarded and scholarship recipients are registered for the trip.
