National Geographic and Lindblad Expeditions invite applications for the 2012 Grosvenor Teacher Fellow program, which will send six educators to Norway and the Arctic Svalbard aboard the ship National Geographic Explorer in June and July 2012.
K-12 classroom teachers and informal educators from the 50 states, Canada, and Puerto Rico are eligible to apply. Before the eleven-day, nine-night trip, fellows must participate in a workshop sponsored by Google, National Geographic, and Lindblad Expeditions in Washington, D.C., April 26–28, 2012.
During the trip and afterward, fellows will use what they learn to develop innovative strategies for teaching about geography and ocean environments and for advocating for geographic literacy.
The fellowship is named for Gilbert M. Grosvenor, chairman of the National Geographic Society’s Education Foundation and a longtime advocate for geographic education in schools.
The fellowship covers room and board, round-trip airfare, transfers, and a
substitute teacher, if needed. For more information about the Grosvenor Fellowship and application instructions, visit the Grosvenor Teacher Fellow page.
