This would include a lesson plan, student assignments, students’ work, and other materials. Quality submissions are eligible to receive additional monetary awards.

Pre-Application Information:

The deadline to apply online is June 30, 2017. In addition, the head of the school or another senior administrator must write an e‐mail to the contact to endorse the applicant by the deadline date.

Winners will be notified on or before July 5, 2017.

Note: If you do not apply and have your school’s endorsement in by June 30, 2017, you can still attend, but you will only receive the $400 stipend for out-of-state teachers.

Of the $1,500 Fellowship Grants, $1,200 will be given out on July 27, 2017, the second day of the Workshop. The additional $300 will be mailed to the recipient after he/she has completed all the obligations for receiving the fellowship.

Should the fellowship recipient wishes to receive the SFSU CEU credit, the SFSU registration fee will be deducted from the last $300.

Recipients of this fellowship do not receive the $200 - $400 stipend that is given to teachers from the continental U.S.
