The application deadline for the 2013 New York Life Excellence in Summer Learning Award has passed. We hope you will consider applying for the 2014 award!
The New York Life Excellence in Summer Learning Award recognizes outstanding summer programs that demonstrate excellence in accelerating academic achievement and promoting healthy development for young people between kindergarten and twelfth grade.
The New York Life Excellence in Summer Learning Award is given annually based on an application and interview process that elicits information on a program’s history, mission, goals, operations, management, staff development, partnerships, results, and sustainability. Programs are measured against the National Summer Learning Association's (NSLA) Comprehensive Assessment of Summer Programs (CASP).
Applicants are reviewed by NSLA staff in addition to peer organizations in the field. Site visits are conducted to a select group of finalists to observe program activities before announcing the awards.
