Eligibility:
The Grosvenor Teacher Fellow program is a professional development opportunity for current K-12 classroom teachers and informal educators from the 50 U.S. States, Canada, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico. Applicants must have a proven dedication to geographic education in their teaching field and show promise of continued active engagement in the future. They must have plans to return to a classroom or teaching environment following their assigned expedition and demonstrate the ability to incorporate what they learn into their teaching. Past Grosvenor Teacher Fellows are ineligible to apply again.

Purpose:
The Grosvenor Teacher Fellow program is a professional development opportunity made possible by a partnership between National Geographic Education and Lindblad Expeditions. The program is named in honor of Gilbert M. Grosvenor (pronounced GROHV-nur), Chairman Emeritus National Geographic Society and Education Foundation Board. This opportunity is designed to give current K-12 classroom teachers and informal educators from the 50 U.S. states, Canada, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico the opportunity to extend Grosvenor’s legacy of excellence in geographic education. Through the program, exemplary educators are recognized for their commitment to geographic education and are given the opportunity to be actively engaged in finding new ways to bring geographic awareness to their classrooms or informal learning environments through a field-based experience.
