The Cato Institute and the Sphere Education Initiative are excited to announce the return of Sphere Summit for the Summer of 2021! Sphere Summit, a full‐​scholarship professional development program for grades 5–12 educators, will be offered both June 27–July 1 and July 25–July 29. The Summits will offer a hybrid experience, which will allow for both in‐​person and online attendance.

A note about applications and acceptance: due to the ongoing pandemic, all applicants accepted to Sphere Summit will initially be offered admission to the online program. If COVID-19 restrictions are lifted in Washington, DC, and around the country, we will offer a number of educators the opportunity to attend the Summit in person. Please indicate on your application which Summit you would prefer to attend and if you would prefer to attend the Summit in person.
