We offer a fellowship for secondary science educators seeking an in-depth, biomedical research experience at Fred Hutch. The fellowship provides support for two summers of research, with additional school year follow-up. While this program is designed for secondary life science teachers, it’s open to other STEM teachers as well.
**The application period for the 2019-2021 fellowship is closed. Please check back for updates on the 2020-2022 fellowship application period.**
Fellowship applicants must be:
We especially encourage applications from past SEP participants, teachers from racial and ethnic groups traditionally underrepresented in health sciences and persons with disabilities, as well as teachers with economically disadvantaged backgrounds, or those who work largely with students from such backgrounds.
Unless teachers and researchers make prior arrangements together, the mentor will have the primary responsibility for selecting a teacher to work with. We will review initial applications and make recommendations to the mentors.
Teachers will negotiate the exact times and dates of their fellowship with their mentor. The expectation is the equivalent of 12 weeks/year, inclusive of time spent working on curriculum and piloting lessons in classrooms.
