The Center for South Asian Studies (CSAS) at the University of Michigan, thanks to funding from the Department of Education, has instituted the K-12 Teacher Fellowship Program.
The fellowship's goal is to sponsor 1 teacher per year to develop South Asia curriculum modules for K-12 classrooms, which will be shared publicly on our website, and through platforms such as the National Council for the Social Studies.
The Teacher Fellow will be provided with access to the University of Michigan library, and mentoring from the South Asia librarian, and faculty experts.
The Teacher Fellow will be required to attend at least four CSAS lectures or events or attend a South Asia-focussed course during the academic year, and to produce a curriculum module by the end of the academic year.
CSAS will provide the Teacher Fellow a professional service fee ($1000), and sponsor travel through the Global Exploration for Educators Organization to India and Nepal during the summer.
The application period opens each year at the beginning of the Fall term and applications are due by early December.
