Fund for Teachers
Ecuador, Alaska, France, Peru...These are only a few of the places Oklahoma teachers have visited as recipients of a Fund for Teachers fellowship.
The Oklahoma Foundation for Excellence partners with the Tulsa Community Foundation and the national Fund for Teachers to award fellowships of up to $5,000 for individuals and $10,000 for teams for self-designed professional growth to teachers who recognize the value of inquiry, the power of knowledge and their ability to make a difference.
Fund for Teachers enriches the professional growth of teachers as they identify and pursue opportunities around the globe that will have the greatest impact on their practice, the academic lives of their students and on their school communities. Since 2006, nearly 800 Oklahoma educators have received Fund for Teachers grants totaling $2.8 million.
