  • AP Fellows – For teachers at schools with 50%+ underrepresented minority students and/or 50%+ low-income students; $1,000 toward tuition and expenses. Recipients are Karen Babb (Norview HS) and Andrew Whitfield (Maury HS).
  • AP New Resources – For teachers planning to teach one of the AP subjects with new resources available in 2019 and at schools serving low-income students; $1,000 toward tuition and expenses.
