2014 Grosvenor Teacher Fellow Program Call for Applications!
The Grosvenor Teacher Fellow program is a professional development opportunity made possible by a partnership between National Geographic Education and Lindblad Expeditions. The program is named in honor of Gilbert M. Grosvenor, Chairman Emeritus National Geographic Society and Education Foundation Board. This opportunity is designed to give current K-12 classroom teachers and informal educators from the 50 U.S. states, Canada, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico the opportunity to extend Grosvenor’s legacy of excellence in geographic education. Through the program, exemplary educators are recognized for their commitment to geographic education and are given the opportunity to be actively engaged in finding new ways to bring geographic awareness to their classrooms or informal learning environments through a field-based experience.
For the online application and more information about the 2014 program, see www.natgeoed.org/gtf. The application deadline is January 5, 2014.
2013 Program Highlights
Selected educators traveled aboard the ship National Geographic Explorer in June, July, or August 2013 to Norway, Arctic Svalbard, Iceland, Greenland, or the Canadian High Arctic. While aboard, Fellows shared the importance of geo-literacy with fellow travelers, developed activities to bring back to their classrooms, and had the adventure of a lifetime. Prior to the expedition, all 2013 Grosvenor Teacher Fellows traveled to Washington, D.C. on April 25-28th with all expenses covered to participate in a pre-trip workshop sponsored by Google, National Geographic, and Lindblad Expeditions.
