Grosvenor Teacher Fellowship

Professional Development Opportunities for Pre-K-12 Educators

What gets a great teacher out of bed in the morning? What fuels their passion to stimulate today's young minds to learn and to be curious? Their passion to share knowledge, and the world, with their students. Teachers are largely unsung heroes. And we believe they deserve to know that there are people out there who respect their work, want to acknowledge their dedication to their students and to education in general, and are willing to provide opportunities to support their growth and development.

That’s why we are committed to the Grosvenor Teacher Fellowship, the professional development opportunity we provide, together with National Geographic Education. It gives current Pre-K-12 classroom teachers and informal educators from the 50 U.S. states, Canada, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and Department of Defense Education Activity Schools recognition and the opportunity to feed their curiosity about the world and learn—by traveling aboard our fleet where they are actively engaged in finding new ways to bring geographic awareness back to their classrooms or informal learning environments.

Since the start of the program in 2007, some 265 Fellows from 48 states and 6 Canadian provinces, plus Washington D.C. and a Department of Defense Dependents School abroad have brought back vivid first-hand geographic awareness and knowledge to tens of thousands of students and educators nationwide. Every year, a new cohort of educators is selected for the fellowship and will travels with us to polar regions, Galápagos, Southeast Alaska, Central America and beyond.


Educators must complete National Geographic Certification if selected

If you’re a Pre-K-12 classroom or informal educator, or someone interested on an educator’s behalf, you can find more details about the program plus case study videos, photos, and other resources here.
