There are still a few fellowships available for the Root Deep, Grow Tall Project-Based Learning initiative offered by the Hindman Settlement School and Morehead Writing Project. These fellowships offer teachers the opportunity to participate in a National Endowment for the Humanities grant specifically designed to support their students in the creation of passion projects in art, music, history, foodways, or culture.
This is an opportunity for teachers at any level and any content area – they just need to be interested in project-based learning. We are accepting teachers throughout our region and Kentucky although preference will be given to Eastern Kentucky teachers.
Teachers willing to partner with us on our Root Deep, Grow Tall project this summer and fall should complete this form as soon as possible. This summer teachers will receive a stipend for their work and receive research-proven professional development from the National Writing Project and the support of the celebrated Hindman Settlement School to create a humanities unit unique to your students. In the fall your students will host celebrated Appalachian artisans and engage in powerful project-based learning activities designed to lead to projects that will be published for a national audience.
This project is an amazing opportunity for the selected teachers and their students. We have limited fellowships available and applications will close when all positions have feen filled or June 10 whichever comes first.
