C-SPAN's 2014 Teacher Fellowship Program

C-SPAN invites teachers of social studies, as well as media/ technology educators in grades 6-12, who are highly familiar with C-SPAN’s programs and demonstrate successful innovative methods of integrating C-SPAN’s programming and resources into their teaching practices, to apply for an opportunity to participate in its 2014 Teacher Fellowship Program, a project of the C-SPAN Education Foundation. This Fellowship is open to certified teachers in public or private schools who are members of C-SPAN Classroom, a free membership service dedicated to supporting educators’ use of C-SPAN programming in their classrooms.

For four weeks during summer 2014, Fellowship recipients will collaborate with C-SPAN’s Education department to develop new teaching materials using C-SPAN resources in order to better serve our Classroom members nationwide. This program takes place at C-SPAN’s offices in Washington, DC. Each Fellow receives an award valued at $7,000 which includes housing and travel expenses. Fellows may also participate in C-SPAN’s Summer Educators’ Conference where they share their ideas with education colleagues about creating innovative learning experiences using C-SPAN’s programs and websites.

Applications are currently closed. The three Fellowship recipients have been selected and will be announced shortly.
