CSTA 2021 Scholarships

Are you looking to attend the CSTA 2021 Conference but funding is an issue? There are a great many scholarships available that can help. Visit the scholarship site for full details and application information. I copied a lot of the information below.

Note that there are scholarships for international attendees and not just US based teachers. Applications close on April 30, 2021. So apply soon so you don’t miss out!

CSTA prides itself in promoting equitable access to the CSTA Annual Conference, our premier professional learning program for K-12 CS teachers, by offering scholarships that subsidize 100% of the program cost. These scholarships are intended to support teachers whose limited financial resources may prevent them from attending.

Our goal is to support as many teachers as possible. We currently have funding available for 325 scholarships for U.S. teachers but expect to secure additional funding. We will first prioritize awarding scholarships to: Black teachers and other teachers of color, those who teach marginalized students (BIPOC students, low-income, rural communities), and first-time conference attendees.

If you have a disability or require assistance completing your application, we are happy to help. Please reach out to

Applications close on April 30, 2021.

To be eligible for scholarships to the 2021 CSTA Conference, you must:

  1. be a CSTA Basic or CSTA+ member,
  2. directly teach computer science to K-12 students, and
  3. not have access to funding from your school or organization to cover conference registration fees.

Conference presenters and chapter leaders already receive complimentary conference registration and need not apply.
