Presenting is so enriching that APIBA would like all teachers to experience it. We are granting a scholarship for a first-time presenter at next September’s FAAPI Conference in Posadas, Misiones.

Do you have an idea worth sharing? Have you tried out something that worked well? Have you done action research? Do you have a contribution to make? FAAPI Conferences are THE place to share with colleagues from all over the country in the friendliest environment you can imagine, where everyone enjoys three days of fruitful learning and heartfelt networking. You can’t miss it!


APIBA awards this scholarship to encourage teachers who are first-time Conference speakers to participate in a FAAPI Annual Conference. APIBA will grant one scholarship for the FAAPI 2017 Conference, which covers the registration fee and AR$6000 to contribute to the travel expenses of a conference speaker. APIBA Members can be awarded the scholarship only once.
