Twelve outstanding teachers and school leaders will be selected. These will be educators who have delivered transformative and measurable outcomes, for their students and wider communities. Each recipient receives a $45,000 Teaching Fellowship, which includes $10,000 to support their professional development, $25,000 for a school project to improve outcomes for their students, and a visit to a high-performing education system.
