Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation Accepting Nominations for HistoryQuest Fellowship

Founded in 1945, the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation identifies and develops the nation’s best minds to meet its most critical challenges and help shape American society.

As part of this mission, the foundation is accepting applications for its Woodrow Wilson HistoryQuest Fellowship, an expenses-paid professional development opportunity open to middle and high school American history and social studies teachers in Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York City, and Pennsylvania.

The WW HistoryQuest program blends games, play, and digital tools to transform both teacher practice and student engagement. Developed in partnership with the New York City-based Institute of Play, the program helps teachers bring game-based learning into their classrooms, with the goal of teaching students the principles of design thinking, strategy, resources, and variables that apply to historical situations as well as to games.

The 2018 program will take place during the week of July 22 in Princeton, New Jersey. The nomination period is open through February 2.

See the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation for complete program guidelines and application instructions.

Deadline: February 2, 2018 (Nominations)
