Newcomb Grant

The Lola B. Newcomb Beginning Teacher Support Grant is made possible by a gift from the estate of Mrs. Newcomb, who attended summer school at the UW College of Education in the 1930s.

The grant provides $1,000 in professional development funds to first-year teachers in Wyoming who are graduates of UW. Grants may be used for a range of activities, including:

  • Mentoring
  • Conferences and workshops
  • Travel related to those activities
  • Substitute time to allow the recipient to participate in mentoring and professional development opportunities
  • Purchase of materials for the classroom.

Grant recipients must return to campus on a day, to share what they have learned with our students, faculty and staff. Applications for the Newcomb Grant are available each fall, through the College of Education Dean's Office.
