Fund for Teachers’ fellowships are based on the belief that teachers know best what they AND their students need to succeed. We also believe that teachers know best what our organization needs to most effectively support teachers. That’s why we started our Educator Advisory Council. And that’s why we want you to apply for the two-year term/paid opportunity.
Over the past two years, our Educators’ Advisory Council (EAC) members have helped us:
- Redesign our Fellowship rubric
- Create a new grant program (Innovation Circles) and
- Diversify our Fellowship cohort.
EAC members commit to four two-hour meetings per year, and also complete feedback, pre-work and possible committee work. In return, Fund for Teachers provides a $700 stipend for this approximately 20-hour time commitment. We are committed to hiring a group of Fellows that is diverse in identity, location, and teaching assignment.
You can learn more about this opportunity and apply here.
When asked why she wanted to join the EAC, Victoria Thomson responded, “I am the first generation to go to college in my family and ended up thriving at an Ivy League School. I wanted to give back to students and inspire them, which is why I became a teacher. As an adult, I see teachers get stuck by the barriers placed on them in the classroom. I see and hear teachers feel like victims of a system. I want to be a part of a group that inspires teachers to find other teachers to be rise up together and be brave, to do what is best for our children, our future leaders.”
We look forward to receiving your application by July 10th and announcing our newest EAC members by the beginning of August.
UPDATE: As of July 11, we are no longer accepting applications…
