Fund for Teachers enriches the personal and professional growth of teachers by supporting them as they identify and pursue opportunities around the world that make the greatest impact on their practice, students and school communities. Since 2001, Fund for Teachers has awarded 8,500 teachers $32 million in grants to visit 152 countries on all seven continents.
PEF is proud to be the local partner for Hamilton County Department of Education applicants. Fund for Teachers has awarded more than $770,000 to 192 Hamilton County teachers since 2012. Fund for Teachers allotted $62,000 in grant awards for Hamilton County public school teachers in 2020. Fourteen Hamilton County public school teachers from 12 schools will learn in 12 countries across the globe next summer.
Due to the far-reaching implications of the Coronavirus, Fund for Teachers is deferring all 2020 grants for one year, when these award-winning teachers will pursue their fellowships.
