Areas of Interest:
The Museum Teacher Fellowship Program, an initiative of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, enables talented teachers to become leaders in Holocaust education, bringing the history and lessons of the Holocaust to new places and new audiences.
Each year, up to twenty educators in grades 7 through 12 and community college faculty will be designated as Museum Teacher Fellows. These educators must show evidence of extensive knowledge of Holocaust history, successful teaching experience, and participation in community and professional organizations.
Selected teachers will participate in a five-day, all-expense paid summer institute at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, DC, designed to immerse participants in advanced historical and pedagogical issues. Following the summer institute, Fellows are expected to create and implement an outreach project in their schools, colleges, communities, or professional organizations. In July of the following year, Fellows will attend a follow-up program at the Museum to assess their various efforts and to continue their study of the Holocaust with Museum staff and noted speakers.
Community college faculty and middle and high school history, social studies, foreign-language, English, and journalism teachers, as well as librarians and instructional media specialists, are encouraged to apply for the Fellowships. Other content areas will be considered as well. It is expected that teachers will have taught the Holocaust for a minimum of five years.Note: The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum also offers several other professional development opportunities for teachers. Visit the Museum's website for more information.
Application guidelines are available on the Museum's website. Applications must be submitted online.
