Vermont teachers working in middle grades and high schools are invited to apply for a Rowland Fellowship of up to $100,000 and join the 2023-2024 Cohort of Rowland Fellows. The Rowland Foundation has recently expanded its eligibility requirements in order to make this transformative professional development experience accessible to middle grade teachers for the first time!

The Rowland Foundation seeks applicants who have demonstrated a capacity for leadership; a commitment to collaboration; and a willingness to take risks and build relationships in order to address problems and grow through challenges. Ideal candidates are visionary and motivated leaders who see connections between the school's culture and climate and the student's classroom performance.

"By giving teachers the gift of time to close the gap between what they want to do and what they are able to do, The Rowland Foundation has given our teachers and the schools of Vermont the capacity to experiment, to take risks and to make real their aspirations for their students."
Rebecca Holcombe,
Former VT Sec of Educ.
