The Surdna Arts Teachers Fellowship Program (SATF) announced Fellowship recipients for the 12th round of its national awards. This will be the final year of the SATF program before it transitions to the National Arts Teachers Fellowship Program (NATF) at the Center for Arts Education at the Boston Arts Academy (see complete details about the transition).

Twenty outstanding arts teachers, representing 16 schools in 14 states from around the country, were selected from an initial pool of 65 applicants.  A total of $110,000 was awarded to teachers, and an additional $1,500 will be awarded to their schools for post-Fellowship activities. The teachers excel in a broad spectrum of visual, performing, and literary arts.

Award recipients were evaluated by a peer review panel based on demonstrated excellence both as artists and teachers.  All permanently assigned, full- and part-time arts faculty in eligible arts high schools were invited to submit applications.
