AP Teacher Scholarships

Through four scholarship programs, the College Board offers qualifying teachers at schools without funding for professional development the opportunity to attend a weeklong AP® Summer Institute (APSI) for free.

Topics covered at AP Summer Institutes include:

  • AP course goals, objectives, content, resources, equipment, and bibliographies
  • Syllabi, lesson plans, and assignments
  • Development and grading of AP Exams
  • Teaching strategies and best practices
