Fellowships of up to $5,000 to USA educators and up to $10,000 to teams to improve professional skills. This program is open to full-time K-12 educators, including curriculum heads, curriculum specialists, classroom teachers, librarians, and media specialists. Proposals should articulate creative, thoughtful activities or projects that demonstrate potential for learning for the teacher, the student, and the school community.
