NEHS believes in educators and wishes to support them, particularly those who are willing to add even more to the stresses of 21st century education by willingly serving as NEHS Advisors. Advisors of active chapters may apply for up to $350 in Advisor Grants to support professional development. For example, these grants might be used for:
- Registration to a local, state, or national conference or convention focused on the English language arts, including virtual conference fees;
- Ticket fees for educational seminars, speakers, or presentations, excluding ticket fees for entertainment; and
- Professional, pedagogical texts selected to enhance teaching skills; a set of texts to be used within English department professional development would also be considered for the grants. (Student texts would be excluded; advisors may apply for Classroom Library Grants to develop collections for student use.)
