2013 Teacher Fellowship Program-- United States Holocaust Memorial Museum


July 14–18, 2013
Applications due February 8, 2013.

The Museum Teacher Fellowship Program enables talented teachers to become leaders in Holocaust education, bringing the history and lessons of the Holocaust to new places and new audiences.

About the Program

Each year, the Museum designates up to 20 educators —from grades 7 through 12 and community college faculty— as new Museum Teacher Fellows. These educators must show evidence of extensive knowledge of Holocaust history, successful teaching experience, and participation in community and professional organizations.

Teacher Fellows participate in a five-day, all-expense paid summer institute at the Museum in Washington, DC, designed to immerse them in advanced historical and pedagogical issues. Following the summer institute, Teacher Fellows are expected to create and implement an outreach project in their schools, colleges, communities, or professional organizations. In July of the following year, they attend a follow-up program at the Museum to assess their efforts and to continue their study of the Holocaust with Museum staff and noted speakers.
