School Ambassador Fellowship Program

Founded on the principles of partnership, collaboration and cooperation  between the Federal Government and school-based educators, the U.S. Department of Education designed the School Ambassador Fellowship program to enable outstanding teachers, administrators, and other school leaders, such as school counselors, psychologists, social workers, and librarians to bring their school and classroom expertise to the Department and to expand their knowledge of the national dialogue about education. The School Ambassador Fellowship is a professional learning community designed to improve educational outcomes for students by leveraging the expertise of school-based practitioners in the creation, evaluation, and dissemination of information around national education initiatives.

The application period for the 2023-2024 cohort of the School Ambassador Fellowship has been extended.   Applications for the 2023-2024 cohort of the School Ambassador Fellowship will now remain open until 11:59pm ET on January 3, 2023.
