Who can apply?

Applications for the CSA are open for teachers and educators in the US, Israel, and Europe. 

We accept applications from Israel and the following European countries: Austria, Bosnia, Croatia, Czech Republic, Estonia, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Moldova, Montenegro, North Macedonia, Poland, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Turkey and Ukraine. Teachers from Jewish schools may apply from any European country. 

In North America, we welcome applications from middle/high school teachers, county/district education /school administrators, and museum/Holocaust organization educators. While we encourage applications from every state and Canada, due to our funding sources, we will likely have funding primarily to bring public school educators from Newark, NJ; Baltimore, MD; South Carolina; North Carolina; South Florida; Houston, TX; Los Angeles, CA; and possibly Chicago.

Teachers from all levels of the school system are welcome to apply, as well as educators from other educational institutions such as museums. We welcome teachers who have already been in contact with us, as well as those who are new to Centropa, but preference will be given to educators who can demonstrate that they have already used Centropa resources.

 

What are the costs of the CSA?

Teachers from Europe: During the Summer Academy, we will cover your hotel, meals, and program. We ask you to - at least partially - cover your travel costs for yourself. Those who really need it can apply for travel reimbursement for up to 100€. Besides, we ask each participant to pay a 50€ registration fee, the rides to/from airports, and meals on free evenings (4-5). The fee you only have to pay after we announced that your application has been accepted. Special scholarships are available for those who can not afford to pay this fee.

Teachers from Israel: We cover all your costs during the Centropa Summer Academy, including your hotel, meals, travel and transportation costs up to 250€, and program. The only thing you have to pay for yourself is a 50€ registration fee, the rides to/from airports, and meals on free evenings (4-5). The fee you only have to pay after we announced that your application has been accepted. Special scholarships are available for those who can not afford to pay this fee.

Teachers from the US and Canada: we estimate the total cost of the trip will be $3,500, including air fare. While we do our best to raise funds to cover as many of the costs for teachers as possible, we ask that you search for funds, as well. Private school teachers: we ask that your school cover as much of the trip cost as possible and, minimally, your air fare. Public school teachers: we will do our best to find funding for your trip, and ask that you help find funding from your PTA, school, local organizations, or teacher fellowships. All participants must pay a 100 USD registration fee, cover rides to/from airports, and meals on free evenings (4-5). The fee you only have to pay after we announced that your application has been accepted. Special scholarships are available for those who can not afford to pay this fee.

In return to the free CSA experience, we expect you to take part in the whole program actively, use our materials upon your return home, and share the lesson plans you created with us.
