IISME Summer Fellowship Program For Teachers – Now accepting applications


Are you ready to experience a summer of innovation, collaboration, renewed energy and professional growth? Apply for an IISME Summer Fellowship!  The IISME Summer Fellowship Program places eligible K-16 teachers from all disciplines into high-performance industry and research environments for the summer. Teachers work full-time for eight weeks, complete a project for their Host organization, and are paid $8,200 for their work. Teachers devote 10% of their paid time to focus on how they will transfer their Summer Fellowship experience back to their students and colleagues.

By working at one of IISME’s Host organizations, such as Genentech, Stanford University, Dow Chemical Company, Lockheed Martin, Google or Cisco Systems just to name a few, teachers are able to experience, first hand, the practical applications of the science, math and technology they teach. The Summer Fellowship experience becomes a springboard for infusing curriculum with “real world” connections that further engage students in learning.  Many IISME Fellows report that their Summer Fellowship experiences reenergize their enthusiasm and commitment to teaching as they come away with exciting ideas for how to better prepare their students for 21st Century careers.

For more information about the IISME Summer Fellowship Program and to apply, please visit http://iisme.org/teachers. Educators are encouraged to apply by February 15, 2015 to increase their chances of being selected in this competitive process.  

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact IISME’s Executive Director, Shari Liss at sliss@iisme.org or 408.553.3179.
