Fellowship for High School Teachers

From The Surdna Foundation

The Surdna Foundation Fellowships to High School Arts Teachers

The Surdna Foundation is pleased to announce the eighth round of the
Surdna Arts Teachers Fellowship Program, a national initiative to
support the artistic revitalization of outstanding arts teachers in
specialized, public arts high schools. We are asking you to help
disseminate information about the program to eligible arts teachers,
schools and leaders in the fields of arts and education in your region.

Surdna's goal is to help arts teachers in public arts high schools
increase their effectiveness as they guide and train young people for
careers or advanced study in the visual, performing, and literary
arts. The Foundation believes that if teachers can immerse
themselves in their own creative work and interact with professional
artists/colleagues, they will bring new ideas and practices into the

The Surdna Arts Teachers Fellowship Program will enable selected
teachers to create art with professionals in their fields, stay
current with new practices and resources, and create new bodies of
work. Twenty awards of up to $5,000 each will be made. A
complementary grant of $1,500 will be awarded to the Fellow’s school
to support post-fellowship activities.

Letters of Intent to apply are due by November 16, 2007. For more
