C-SPAN's 2017 Teacher Fellowship Program
C-SPAN’s Fellowship program is for educators who have experience using C-SPAN’s programming in the classroom and can demonstrate innovative methods of integrating those programs into educational experiences.
For four weeks during summer 2017, Fellowship recipients will collaborate with C-SPAN’s Education department to develop new teaching materials using C-SPAN resources in order to better serve our Classroom members nationwide. The Fellowship takes place at C-SPAN’s offices in Washington, DC. Each Fellow receives a stipend of $7,000 to cover housing, travel, and living expenses. Fellows will also participate in C-SPAN’s Summer Educators’ Conferences where they share their ideas and experiences using C-SPAN’s programs with conference attendees.

C-SPAN's Summer Educators' Conference
Each summer, C-SPAN hosts two teacher conferences in Washington, DC. The day-and-a-half long conferences are held during the month of July at C-SPAN’s headquarters in the heart of Washington, DC. Airfare to and from Washington, two nights’ hotel stay, and meals during the conference are all provided by C-SPAN.
At these conferences, middle and high school educators (grades 6-12) from around the country gather to learn more about C-SPAN and how to effectively integrate C-SPAN’s online resources into their classrooms.
Conference participants will learn:
- About C-SPAN’s mission, programming, and event coverage
- How to navigate C-SPAN’s programs, websites and resources
- About our StudentCam and Teacher Fellowship enrichment opportunities that are available to students and educators
- Examples of how colleagues nationwide have effectively incorporated C-SPAN’s programming and resources into their curriculums to create engaging learning experiences for students
- About specific programming, such as C-SPAN's coverage of the 2016 presidential campaign
Conference applications will be available in February 2017
