The Woodrow Wilson HistoryQuest Fellowship
The 2017 HistoryQuest Fellowship is now accepting nominations.
Info For Nominators
The Woodrow Wilson HistoryQuest Fellowship relies on the power of games, play, and digital tools to transform both teacher practice and student engagement. All candidates for the Fellowship must be willing and able to use games and interactive learning in their classrooms; willing and able to present the program regionally and statewide to teachers from other districts; and committed to implementing the techniques they learn in conjunction with their curricular objectives.
Because WW HistoryQuest Fellows must have the full support of their schools and districts, they must be nominated by their principal or superintendent. Direct applications by candidates and self-nominations are not accepted. Principals or superintendents are encouraged to nominate applicants in teams of two or three. Fellows nominated in teams of two or three will receive preference in the selection process. Teams should strive to include a mix of representation—for example, one middle school teacher and one high school teacher, across schools, or one relatively new teacher and one more seasoned teacher within the same school.
If you are a Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Jersey, or Pennsylvania principal or superintendent wishing to nominate teachers for the Woodrow Wilson HistoryQuest Fellowship, please be sure to let your candidates know that you are submitting this nomination. Once you complete the nomination form, the nominee(s) will receive an email with instructions on how to complete the application.
The deadline for nominations is December 16, 2016; the deadline for applications is January 13, 2017.
