Helping You Help Your Students
The AF Teacher Fellowship program gives teachers the opportunity to gain first-hand experience in a corporate IT setting, as well as network with other teachers, learning knowledge and skills that they can then take back to their classrooms to help students prepare for technology-based careers.
The 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.
2023 AF Teacher Fellowship Application
The AF Teacher Fellows will earn $30 per hour for the time they work over the course of the program. Schedules will be flexible to accommodate differing school summer schedules, required professional development days, etc. This flexibility includes up to two unpaid weeks off. AF Teacher Fellows will also receive a $2,000 stipend to use for their classroom upon completion of the program.
