Request a Grant Writer

Fellowships to USA, Canada, and Puerto Rico PreK-12 classroom teachers and informal educators for professional development in geographic literacy through field-based experiences abroad. Fellows will participate in a life-changing expedition that will expand their teaching practice, develop leadership capabilities, and enhance knowledge about the connection between the natural and human world.

Goals

The goals of the Grosvenor Teacher Fellowship are for educators to

  • Gain firsthand experiences and knowledge of the interconnectedness of the human and natural world;
  • Integrate their experiences as Grosvenor Teacher Fellows into their teaching in an effort to create more globally minded students who are empowered to take action; and
  • Grow as leaders and ambassadors.

Fellowship Requirements

Fellows are expected to be active and engaged members of the Grosvenor Teacher Fellowship over the course of the expedition year and the year following. This includes participating in a required in-person (all travel expenses paid) preparatory workshop in Washington, D.C., from March 31–April 5, 2020 (before the expedition season commences), as well as periodic virtual meetups and participating as an active member of our digital community. Fellows are also expected to serve as ambassadors of the Grosvenor Teacher Fellowship in all professional settings.

In addition, throughout the course of the program year, Fellows are required to submit a number of professional development deliverables to National Geographic. Deliverables include goal setting, outreach and classroom action plans, media and data collection, a digital log, reflection, a blog post, an activity outline, outreach presentation(s), and outreach documentation. Fellows will receive detailed information about all required deliverables after their selection into the program is confirmed. All required deliverables are intended to help educators incorporate their field-based experience into their teaching practice and share it with their professional and community networks.
