Global Teachers Fellowships
Up to 25 fellowships will be awarded in 2012 to support the professional and personal development of rural teachers in the U.S.. The awards (up to $5,000 for individual teachers and $10,000 for a team of two or more teachers) support teachers' participation in self-designed summer learning experiences and a two-day place-based learning institute in the fall. Teachers are encouraged to center their learning in an international travel and study experience, out of which they develop interdisciplinary, place-based learning curricula aligned with their specific state and local content standards. If you are a GLOBE teacher living in a rural area, this is an opportunity for you. Visit the Rural Trust's Global Teacher Fellowship website for more details and application information.
Eligibility: Any K-12 teacher working full-time and teaching at least 60% time in a rural community can apply for the fellowship. Counselors, media specialists and other school personnel working in a teaching setting for at least 60% of their paid work time may also apply.type: globe-news
