    US High School Science Teachers- Apply to be an SSP Fellow

      Apply to be an SSP Fellow!

      December 16th, 2010 by Caitlin Jennings, Communications Coordinator, Society for Science & the Public

      The Society for Science & the Public (SSP) Fellows 2011 application period is now open.  The SSP Fellows program, with generous support from Intel, provides teachers financial and training resources to support and inspire the success of their most enthusiastic science students. Fellows are competitively selected from across the U.S. and may serve for up to four years.  SSP Fellows guide students to produce project-based research of the highest quality, such as is selected for SSP’s premiere science competition, the Intel Science Talent Search.

      Ten high school teachers will be selected as the 2011 SSP Fellows Class.  They will each receive $8,500, which is renewable annually for up to four years, as well as training and resources to start a high quality scientific research program in their schools.  Included in that training is a one week fully paid trip to attend the SSP Fellows Institute in Washington, DC, which is worth two graduate credits.
