• 2019 Summer Fellows Program

    This summer, the Delaware Department of Education will be hosting two Summer Fellows programs:

    • Educators as Catalysts (for current Delaware public school teachers and specialists); and
    • Delaware Future Education Leaders Program (for undergraduate students, graduate students, and recent graduates in all programs of study)

    Participants in both programs will own tightly-defined projects critical to Delaware’s policy agenda. They also will participate in weekly sessions with Delaware leaders in state government, district and school leadership. These sessions are intended to develop them as leaders and provide context on education issues of national importance.  The fellowships will culminate in a presentation of their work and policy recommendations to department staff and leadership.

    The application deadline for both fellowships is Monday, April 1. To apply, select the program links below.
