Do you know a passionate educator who would make a great computer science teacher? Now’s your chance to recognize their impact!

This year, is offering full-ride scholarships for thousands of eligible middle and high school teachers attending our high quality professional learning workshops. These scholarships are worth up to $3,000 per teacher, and are funded in large part thanks to support from our generous donors.

Please note that only U.S. teachers are eligible for scholarships and discounts to our in-person professional learning program. Outside the U.S., the teacher prep course is online.

Nominate a teacher using this form!

Nearly 7,000 teachers were nominated to attend one of our workshops last year, to take the first step to bring computer science into their classrooms. Attending a Professional Development workshop is a key way to introduce computer science into schools, to create opportunity for students who otherwise wouldn’t have access. Many first-time computer science teachers say the workshops make them feel more confident to teach CS overall. What’s more, the majority of attendees rate it as their best professional learning experience ever!

“I was really happy to be nominated,” said Saul Nunez, a high school teacher in New Mexico who was nominated in 2019 to attend a CS Principles workshop by a program manager in the computer science department at New Mexico State University. “I felt I needed some professional development and professional development was something I wanted to do, but I didn’t know how to get started. The best part was [meeting people with prior CS teaching experience]. They helped me understand what I was getting into.”

Since 2014, has prepared more than 100,000 educators to teach our courses, and they give our program rave reviews. We welcome teachers from all subject areas — no computer science experience needed!

To inspire as many outstanding teachers as possible to apply this year, we’re encouraging everyone to nominate a favorite teacher to teach computer science.

Fill out this short form to let us know who they are and why they’d make a great computer science teacher. We’ll let them know you nominated them for a scholarship and encourage them to apply!

Computer science provides a foundation in critical thinking and creativity for every student, not just those who want careers in tech. But most schools don’t have a complete computer science offering, even though most teachers and parents believe it should be part of core curriculum.

Let’s help more teachers get started teaching CS!
