Eva Helwing Memorial Scholarship
The purpose of the NABE Eva Helwing Memorial Scholarship is to provide support to university students pursuing a career in bilingual education. Eva Helwing was an advocate for dual language and a groundbreaker in developing today's popular dual language programs at many schools in Chicago. She was the first principal of the Inter-American Magnet School in Chicago, which she led from 1985 to 2005. The applications will be reviewed by the NABE Board. The 2014 award amount is $2000. The José Martí Scholarship will contribute $1000 of the $2000 scholarship. The entire award will be sent to the recipient's postsecondary institution as a tuition contribution. The scholarship award will be announced during the annual NABE 2014 conference.
