The applications for 2013–2014 U.S. Department of Education Washington, DC, and Classroom Teaching Ambassador Fellowship are now available. The application period will close on January 29, 2013. Selections will be made in the spring, and 2013 Fellows will start their one-year assignments by August 2013. Below are links to both applications:
Washington fellows: a full-time appointment based at the Department's headquarters in Washington
Classroom fellows: teachers to participate on a part-time basis for the department, in addition to their regular school responsibilities, working in collaboration with the department's regional offices
Fellows work to support the department's mission by employing a cadre of teachers to gain significant knowledge about the department's information and resources, share this information with other educators across the country, and contribute their classroom expertise to the national dialogue. Teaching Ambassador Fellows are outstanding teachers with a record of leadership, strong communication skills, and insights into educational policy based in classroom expertise.
