2017 HERB KOHL TEACHER FELLOWSHIP PROGRAM NOMINATION GUIDELINES
FOR RELIGIOUS AND INDEPENDENT SCHOOLS

 

Purpose

The purpose of the Herb Kohl Teacher Fellowship program is to recognize and support teaching excellence and innovation in the State of Wisconsin, USA. Our goal is to support teachers in the pursuit of their unrealized goals for their classrooms or professional development. The Foundation awards 100 Wisconsin teachers with $3,000 Kohl Fellowship grants, and each Kohl Fellowship recipient's school received a matching $3,000 grant. Recipients' professional accomplishments are celebrated at a recognition luncheon in the spring. Wisconsin's religious and independent schools receive a proportionate number of the total fellowships awarded each year.

Nomination Process

To be eligible to compete for a fellowship, a teacher must be nominated by a:
parent
teacher
student
community member, or
school administrator

Classroom teachers in Pre-K through grade 12 who plan to continue teaching in their current capacity for at least the following year are eligible for nomination.

Each jurisdiction receives an application allotment based on the total student enrollment of the jurisdiction. Jurisdiction representatives receive this allotment number in September.

Please note that some jurisdictions may have separate rotation schedules in which schools are eligible to participate each year. If you are unsure if your jurisdiction has its own rotation schedule, please check with your superintendent/WCRIS representative first before completing an application. Your superintendent/WCRIS representative, with contact information, can be found on the WCRIS website under "WCRIS board members".

Because the purpose of this program is to recognize the contributions of classroom teachers, those staff members whose assignments are administrative or supervisory are ineligible. Previous fellowship recipients are ineligible.

Nomination forms must be submitted to the central education office for the diocese/jurisdiction with which the teacher's school is affiliated on or before Friday, September 23, 2016.
