The Warren Fellowship for Future Teachers is a week-long program that introduces university students preparing for a career in teaching or advocacy to the history and lessons of the Holocaust and other genocides. The Warren Fellowship, supported by The Warren Fellowship Fund, is developing a corps of educators who want to learn how to effectively teach about genocide and the Holocaust.
The fellowship takes place at Holocaust Museum Houston in Houston, Texas each spring. Twenty-five pre-service teacher educators and graduate students will be selected by a faculty and Museum panel and will be designated as Warren Fellows.
Once accepted to this prestigious fellowship, participants attend a six–day, expense-paid institute designed to immerse the Fellows in historical and pedagogical issues related to the Holocaust. Only those applicants who commit to attending the entire Fellowship will be accepted. This prestigious program is by application only.
Eminent Holocaust and genocide scholars provide historical and academic content and university and Fellowship faculty and Museum staff provide pedagogical context.
During the week, Fellows have the opportunity to meet and work with survivors of the Holocaust. Students who plan to teach elementary, middle or secondary school or at the university level are encouraged to apply for the Warren Fellowship. We also welcome applicants interested in related work in advocacy.
Applications are available online or can be downloaded on the website. Applications must be submitted by April 3, 2017. I have also attached the digital file of the application to this email, please feel free to share this information with your networks.
