Fund for Teachers is the national donor supported organization that awards fellowships for self-designed professional growth to teachers who recognize the value of inquiry, the power of knowledge and their ability to make a difference. The Fund provides fellowship grants directly to teachers, with more than three years of experience, to support their professional learning during the summer. Their experiences come in many forms, but share the purpose of better teaching. Go online to find out more about the eligibility of your school district. Teachers may apply individually (maximum grant $5,000) or in teams (maximum grant $10,000). Application deadlines vary state-by-state.
