Please watch this space for scholarship information for the 2023 Jane Austen Summer Program (June 15-18) in the coming months. 


JASP’s teacher scholarships are open to ALL current middle school and high school teachers who want to learn more about incorporating Jane Austen, Shakespeare, and better practices in their curriculum. We encourage current teachers and teacher leaders in English, Social Studies, History, Drama, Theater, and other relevant disciplines to apply!

In addition, to help ensure that Jane Austen remains accessible to everyone, JASP is pleased to offer the Abella Scholarship, which will be awarded to one teacher in the scholarship cohort. This scholarship will be awarded to a North Carolina middle and high school teacher. Teachers from historically underrepresented communities are encouraged to apply for the Abella Scholarship.


All scholarships cover the full tuition fee and materials as well as a welcome luncheon for teacher scholars. Completion of JASP bestows 3 CEUs for licensure renewal.
