BIPOC Travel Award
The Council for Exceptional Children (CEC) is committed to upholding the vision of diversity, equity, and inclusion, and to supporting all of our members, volunteers, and staff as well as the infants, toddlers, and students with exceptionalities and families we serve—especially those differentially impacted by systemic racism. In this spirit, we invite Black, Indigenous and People of color (BIPOC) who are CEC members to submit an application for the BIPOC Travel Awards.
