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 22, 2017.
