U.S. ED’s School Ambassador Fellowship applications due Jan. 14
December 6, 2021
Applications are now being accepted for the 2022-2023 cohort of U.S. Department of Education’s School Ambassador Fellowship. Applications are due Friday, Jan. 14, 2022.
The School Ambassador Fellowship is designed to improve educational outcomes for students by leveraging the expertise of school-based practitioners in the creation, dissemination and evaluation of national education policy. It is founded on the principles of partnership, collaboration and cooperation with school-based educators.
The School Ambassador Fellowship offers two separate nine-month tracks: full-time and part-time. The full-time appointment is based at the Department of Education Headquarters in Washington, D.C., and requires fellows to relocate to the Washington, D.C., area for their fellowship experience. The part-time fellowship does not require relocation and allows educators to maintain their regular school responsibilities in their home communities, while also participating in the School Ambassador Fellowship experience.
To be eligible for the School Ambassador Fellowship, participants must:
  • Be a U.S. Citizen or permanent resident.
  • Currently be a teacher, administrator, counselor, social worker, or other school staff member (and anticipate being employed in this role during the 2022 – 2023 school year).
  • Be employed by a traditional public, charter, private, virtual, military (DoDEA) or tribal (BIE) school that serves any grade, preschool through 12.
  • Have at least five years of experience in his/her role, up to and including the current school year.
  • Have daily interaction with students and/or educators in his/her school/district role.
Ideal candidates for this program are educators from public, charter, independent, magnet, parochial schools, etc. who have made significant contributions to student learning and culture, can effectively communicate to a variety of internal and external education stakeholders, and can promote excellence in education through their collaboration and leadership capabilities.
