The Woodrow Wilson HistoryQuest Fellowship

WW is now the Institute for Citizens & Scholars. Learn more here.


The Woodrow Wilson HistoryQuest Fellowship offers professional development for middle and high school American history teachers in CT, DE, MA, NJ, NY, and PA. The program aims to use the power of games, play, and digital tools to transform both teacher practice and student engagement. In the long term, it may also provide a new disciplinary resource for university-based teacher preparation.

The Fellowship

The Woodrow Wilson HistoryQuest Fellowship is now recruiting for 2020.

  • HistoryQuest Fellows attend free of charge a five-day summer workshop, in the Princeton, New Jersey area, including single-occupancy housing and meals, with expenses paid.
  • HistoryQuest Fellows will be encouraged to share what they have learned with colleagues in their school and/or district.
