The Warren Fellowship for Future Teachers, supported by The Warren Fellowship Fund, is developing a corps of educators who want to learn how to effectively teach about the Holocaust and other genocides. The fellowship takes place at Holocaust Museum Houston in Houston, Texas. (The 2021 Fellowship will be virtual.)

A selection committee will choose pre-service teacher educators, graduate students, and those interested in advocacy who want to learn more about the Holocaust, genocide, and human rights and how to teach about this history. Those selected will be designated as 2021 Warren Fellows. The Fellowship also welcomes applications for two Faculty Fellows, those who teach content and pedagogy to future educators at the university/college level. Those selected will be designated as 2021 Faculty Fellows of the Warren Fellowship.

Once accepted to this prestigious fellowship, participants attend a four-day virtual institute designed to immerse them in historical and pedagogical issues related to the Holocaust and other genocides. Only those applicants who commit to attending the entire Fellowship will be accepted.

Eminent scholars provide historical and academic content and university and Fellowship faculty and Museum staff provide pedagogical context. During the week, Fellows will have the opportunity to meet and work with survivors of the Holocaust and their families.

There are reading requirements before the Fellowship and several tasks to complete during the Fellowship.

Students who plan to teach at the university level or those interested in teaching elementary, middle or secondary school art, English/language arts, history, science, and social studies are encouraged to apply for the Warren Fellowship for Future Teachers. We also welcome applicants who are interested in related work in advocacy.

Applications are due March 12, 2021.
