The U.S. Department of Education is now accepting applications for the 2015 – 2016 Teaching Ambassador Fellowships.
The Teaching Ambassador Fellowship (TAF) program invites outstanding teachers to contribute their classroom expertise to the national dialogue and to facilitate discussions with educators across the country. Participants at recent National Blue Ribbon School Recognition Ceremonies will have met one or more TAFs as part of the Roundtable information sessions at the ceremony.
TAFS spend a year learning about federal education programs, policies, and processes through one or two Fellowship positions: Washington Fellows serve full-time at the U.S. Department of Education in Washington. Classroom Fellows participate part-time, working with U.S.D.E. Regional Officers in addition to their regular school responsibilities. Both are paid positions. Learn more about the program.
