Fund for Teachers enriches the personal and professional growth of teachers by recognizing and supporting them as they identify and pursue opportunities around the globe that will have the greatest impact on their practice, the academic lives of their students and on their school communities.

"By providing our best teachers with the chance to become “lead learners” in world studies and travel, Fund for Teachers ensures that they return with fresh, creative approaches to curriculum. For our best teachers, the FFT grant provides much needed recognition of excellence in the classroom, offers teachers an outstanding opportunity for professional development, and rewards them for their commitment to their student’s academic growth."
