Einstein Fellows Applications Due December 5

Einstein Fellowship Applications Due this Wednesday! 

Deadline to Apply - 11:00 pm (EST) on December 5, 2012

Are you an educator wanting to help impact national STEM education programs and policies? Would you like to spend next school year working in DC among a cohort of like-minded leaders? Current K-12 STEM educators with a demonstrated excellence in teaching and leadership are encouraged to apply for the 2013-14 Albert Einstein Distinguished Educator Fellowship Program!

Selected teachers will spend 11 months in Washington, DC providing a professional educator's perspective on STEM policies and programs. Einstein Fellows may serve in a Congressional office or in a government agency such as the Department of Energy (DOE), the National Science Foundation (NSF), the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), or the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).  Fellows receive a competitive monthly stipend and an allowance for professional travel and relocation.

The goal of the Einstein Fellowship program is to inform national policy and improve communication between the K-12 STEM education community and national leaders. Applicants must be U.S. citizens, be currently employed full time in a public or private elementary or secondary school or school district, and must have been teaching in one or more STEM fields full time for at least five of the last seven years. The Triangle Coalition for Science and Technology Education administers the program for the Department of Energy Office of Science in partnership with the other participating federal agencies.
