Fund for Teachers

Since 2003, New Visions for Public Schools has collaborated with Fund for Teachers, a nonprofit organization committed to recognizing outstanding and dedicated teachers across the United States, to award fellowships for summer learning to New York City teachers.

FFT fellowships support the personal and professional development of exceptional teachers by funding summer learning experiences. Successful applicants complete summer projects to support their goals and interests as educators and lifelong learners. They return to the classroom with a renewed commitment to teaching, as well as new insights and skills, further equipped to transform student learning.

FFT fellowships fund an extraordinary variety of applicant-designed summer learning projects, during which time fellows deepen mastery of content areas, develop new instructional strategies, create new and enhance existing curricula, cultivate professional relationships with other educators and serve as role models for students and colleagues by taking on new challenges.

This past summer, 43 FFT fellows embarked upon remarkable travels; use the map below to learn more about their learning projects!
