Albert Einstein Distinguished Educator Fellowships allow elementary and secondary math and science teachers to spend a year in Washington, D.C. Selected teachers spend up to a year in a Congressional office, the Department of Energy, the National Science Foundation, the National Aeronautics & Space Administration, the National Institutes of Health, the U.S. Department of Education, or the White House Office of Science & Technology Policy. Recipients get a monthly stipend, plus moving expenses to and from Washington. Full-time teachers in elementary or secondary schools who spend at least three-quarters of their classroom contact hours teaching math, science, or technology are eligible. Applicants must be a U.S. citizen and have a minimum of five years’ full-time classroom experience. This is not a job; it is a fellowship intended to support the intellectual and professional development of teachers who have a sincere desire to contribute their expertise of and be involved in the advancement of science, mathematics, and technology education.
