Thank you to everyone who applied to the NGPF Summer Institute.  We were humbled by the overwhelming response that we received this year and by the commitment to financial education you demonstrated in your personal statements. The selection process was extremely difficult this year. We have notified all who submitted an application of their status and will post those who are accepting their offers shortly.

We also recognize that the large response rate demonstrates the strong demand for additional professional development opportunities. Given your interest in professional development, we thought you would want to know that NGPF is significantly increasing our commitment to serve you:

  • We are planning a series of NGPF FinCamps this year. These are day-long professional development workshops to be held throughout the country. We will be looking for groups of 25-30 teachers interested in an engaging, interactive and teacher-centric professional development experience. Please email Tim on if you are interested in learning more details.

  • We will be offering scholarships for a cohort of teachers to attend the Jump$tart National Educator conference this fall in the Washington, D.C. area. Look for an email describing the details about this scholarship program later this month.

  • We wanted to offer a FREE consultation with any teacher who would like to learn more about NGPF. Whether you are new to NGPF, looking to increase the NGPF resources you use with your class or want to use NGPF as your core curriculum, we would love to have a conversation to see how we can can serve you. Please email Laura on if you’d like to schedule a call.

  • Finally, we offer a virtual PLC program that teachers love.  You provide a lesson, activity or project that you want to improve and get feedback from 2-3 other educators. The time commitment is minimal and the outcomes are exceptional. Sign up for our next batch of PLCs before our next deadline this Friday, March 17th.
