PD Scholarship Fund & PDSF Baskets

Professional Development Scholarship Fund (PDSF)

The Professional Development Scholarship Fund (PDSF) was set up to help fund the travel and/or registration expenses associated with Art Education events such as conferences, workshops, or conventions. Funding is generated through the PDSF Basket Raffles and the Silent Auction at the AAEA annual conference. Available funds are allocated annually. Current AAEA members can apply. Funded applicants are expected to pay the association back by presenting a regional workshop or presenting at the next conference. Applications must be received at least six weeks prior to the event. For additional information, contact aaea.treasurer@gmail.com.

PDSF Baskets @ Conference

How to Bring a Basket

Anyone can contribute a basket to be raffled at the conference on Friday and Saturday. Conference participants are encouraged to donate a basket. Bring a basket( or some other container) of themed materials and supplies that is wrapped up. Items should be secure and easily viewed. Attach a tag that includes a title, description, and items included in the basket. Then, bring your basket(s) to the conference in November! When you arrive at the conference, there will be an area set aside where you will drop your basket off.

How to Go Home with a Basket

Purchase raffle tickets for $2 or 3 for $5 and place them into the bag next to the desired basket. Raffles are held Saturday night for one set of baskets, and at the end of the conference on Sunday before lunch. Must be present to win.
