The Surdna Arts Teachers Fellowship Program (SATF), an initiative of the Surdna Foundation's Thriving Cultures Program, recently announced Fellowship recipients for the tenth round of its national awards. Fifteen outstanding arts teachers, representing 14 specialized public arts high schools and arts-focused magnet and charter high schools from around the country, were selected from an initial pool of 67 applicants. A total of $76,950 was awarded to teachers, and an additional $1,500 to their schools for post-Fellowship activities. The teachers excel in a broad spectrum of visual, performing, and literary arts.
"We're thrilled to be able to offer these Fellowships to teachers of the arts. By focusing on their own creative work and interacting with professional artists and colleagues, these teachers are exposed to new ideas and practices that they can carry back to the classroom.
After ten rounds of Fellowships-and close to 200 Fellows-we've witnessed the transformative effect of the Fellowship experience on both the individuals and the schools," said Ellen B. Rudolph, Program Director for Thriving Cultures, Surdna Foundation.
