All active NEA classroom teachers now have the opportunity to apply for a unique global learning opportunity. The NEA Foundation Global Learning Fellowship offers both a summer international field study and year-long professional development.
The NEA Foundation recognizes that, in order for students to prepare for the global age, educators must first be equipped with the knowledge, skills, and disposition needed to teach in the global age.
This fellowship provides educators with 12 months of professional development to support them as they build global competence skills and create their own lesson plans to share with educators around the world. Fellows will also experience nine days of international field study.
Previous field study destinations have included China, Brazil, and Peru. The anticipated field study destination for the 2018 Global Learning Fellowship is South Africa. This trip will take place between late June and late July 2018.
