Helping You Help Your Students
The AF Teacher Fellowship provides teachers an opportunity to spend the summer with a corporate technology team learning about software development, enterprise information management or technical infrastructure projects.
They can then take this experience back to their classrooms to help their students learn about and prepare for these careers.
2021 AF Teacher Fellowship Application
The AF Teacher Fellows will earn a corporate IT salary for the time they work during the summer. Schedules will be flexible to accommodate differing school summer schedules, required professional development days, etc. AF Teacher Fellows will also receive a $2,000 stipend to use for their classroom upon completion of the program.
Who Is Eligible?
Applications closed March 1, 2021. Applications are open to third- through 12th-grade STEM teachers. Qualified applicants will be required to attend a virtual interview March 19. You do not need to have prior IT experience. As long as you teach science, technology, engineering or math, you're eligible! We anticipate much of the fellowship will be virtual this year due to COVID-19 but hope to be able to have some portion in person at our headquarters in OKC if possible to do so safely. Applications for 2022 fellowships will open in early 2022.
