Teachers from 14 states and two Canadian provinces have been awarded War College scholarships over the past 13 years. These scholarships are made possible by the generous support of War College patrons.

The War College of Seven Years’ War focuses on the French & Indian War in North America (1754-1763), bringing together a panel of distinguished historians from around the country and beyond. The War College takes place in the Deborah Clarke Mars Education Center and is open to the public; pre-registration is required. Space is limited. Those who are interested should register early. A War College brochure and registration form can be downloaded here.

Fort Ticonderoga also offers teacher scholarships for the Eleventh Annual Fort Ticonderoga Seminar on the American Revolution (September 19-21). Brochures and teacher scholarship applications are both available here. Teacher Scholarship applications for the September seminar are due August 15th.
