The TLI Berkshire Scholars program welcomes applicants who are school- and community-based educators, currently teaching, and who reside year-round in the Berkshires. Educators are eligible for one subsidized ticket or program pass for the summer 2019 season. All TLI Berkshire Scholar tickets and program passes are $5.

Application Process

Educators may choose up to 5 TLI programs or events, will be asked to rank choices in order of preference, and must acknowledge availability to attend each of the programs or events chosen.

Educators will be asked to provide contact information, a description of school affiliation or reference from a student/parent, and a one to two-sentence description of how TLI participation would positively impact their teaching practice.

If the number of qualified applicants for any program or event exceeds the number of tickets/passes available, TLI will conduct a random drawing from the pool of qualified applicants. Tickets/passes will be offered in the order names are drawn. Remaining qualified applicants will be added to a waitlist in the order in which their names were drawn.

If you have applied for tickets through the Berkshire Scholars program, you will be contacted shortly with your ticket confirmation.

Other Details

The TLI Berkshire Scholar program will continue in the fall, winter, and spring seasons. Program details will be announced on July 9, 2019 and applications will open on July 30, 2019.

If a TLI Berkshire Scholar does not notify TLI in advance that they are unable to attend an event for which they hold a ticket, we reserve the right to withhold eligibility for future TLI Berkshire Scholar tickets and passes for a period of up to one year.
