Learn how to apply for scholarship to the club

The 40 Hour Teacher Workweek Club provides professional development on productivity to educators who want to focus on what REALLY matters.

Over 25,000 teachers have already starting trimming hours off their workweek by getting organized, streamlining routines, giving kids ownership of the classroom, and being truly intentional about how they use their instructional, contractual, and personal time.

Here’s what club members receive:

  • 52 weeks of new classroom-tested productivity strategies (provided in both PDF and audio form) which are accessible through a private membership site
  • Hundreds of dollars worth of printable teaching resources and templates to help you save time
  • Access to elementary and secondary private Facebook groups where I–and thousands of other teachers—share ideas and answer questions
  • Five free bonuses, including video trainings on self-care habits, the 40HTW List-Making System, and the Big 5 Tips for Teacher Productivity
  • A professional development certificate at the end of the year to document 104 hours of continuing education credits

Even better? You keep your access to the entire program AND the Facebook group even after your year is up, so you can revisit the resources at any time and continue to get support from your cohort. Learn more here.

How the Application Process Works

1. Create a video (no longer than 3 minutes) telling me who you are, what your teaching dream is, and why you want to be part of the 40 Hour Teacher Workweek Club. This does not have to be super formal or professional—just be yourself, and keep it short (videos longer than 3 minutes will be disqualified.) Upload the video to a public social media account, YouTube, Google Drive, Dropbox, or somewhere else I’ll be able to watch it.

2. Fill out this form that will be linked here between May 1-15 only, and include a link to your video.

3. Submit!

Important note: By completing the scholarship application and submitting your video link, you give your consent and understanding that we may publicly share your video and/or a screen capture image from your video after scholarship results are announced.

Selection Criteria

I’m looking for real “action takers” to award these scholarships to. The sooner you get your video completed, the better! I’m also looking for a resourceful teacher who takes initiative in solving new challenges, so if you’ve never recorded a video and uploaded it somewhere before, you’ll need to figure out how.

I encourage you to read the article called “Which teachers get the BEST results from the club?”  This will tell you more about the 6 characteristics of our members who tend to be very successful with creating new productivity habits and maintaining them over time. I’m hoping to award these 20 scholarships to people who will get tremendous results from the club. So, be sure these characteristics would apply to you AND clearly convey that through your application. The more determined you are to create change in your life, the better your results will be.


The application period for the July 2019 cohort was May 1-15, 2019.

The next scholarship application period will be May 1-15, 2020.

Want more ways to join at no cost to you?

Please don’t miss out on the 40 Hour Teacher Workweek Club simply because you can’t pay for it out of your own pocket! We have so many options to help you out:

* Need-based scholarships (apply between May 1st-15th)
* Gift certificates so family or friends can sponsor you
* Funding availability through Donors Choose
* School licensing so a PD budget or PTA can cover it

If you love teaching but are tired of working 24/7 and feeling like you’ve never done enough, you don’t have to struggle on your own. Start thinking through your options, and make a plan for how you can get funding NOW to join us in July.
