Stipends and Policy Workshops

Stipends and In-State Policy Workshops – State boards play an essential role in communicating the importance of a policy area, considering the many angles of that area given unique state conditions, and convening stakeholders to translate a policy idea into reality.  With this in mind, NASBE will provide six state boards stipends of up to $4,000 each to increase a state board’s internal capacity in human capital, time, and/or finances in order to address deeper learning in the context of college, career and civic readiness.  Three states will be provided small stipends in year two of the project and an additional three states, in the third.  These stipends will be accompanied by in-state policy workshops facilitated by NASBE staff to assist state boards in considering the different dimensions of deeper learning.
