Williston, N.D. - The Northwest North Dakota Community Foundation is now accepting applications for the 2022 Grayson Mill Energy STEM Education Fellowships teacher grants program. The fellowships provide STEM educators with resources to support their professional development, and to enhance STEM education in the region for students, educators and their school communities. Program details, an application, and deadline information are available at http://www.NWNDCommunityFoundation.org.
“Grayson Mill Energy is excited to support the region’s educators by investing in their continuing education,” says Whitney Stephenson, senior landman. “This fellowship program will pay dividends to students who are engaged and inspired to learn about STEM.”
Grayson Mill Energy’s STEM Education Fellowship (administered by the Northwest North Dakota Community Foundation) provides educators, possessing a broad vision of what it means to teach and learn, the resources needed to pursue self-designed professional learning experiences. The STEM Education Fellowship may be utilized for virtually any STEM-related professional development, including extant courses or self-designed study, so long as the outcome benefits STEM education in the region and results in enhanced learning environments for educators, their students, and their school communities.
“We are pleased to begin a relationship with Grayson Mill Energy through their leadership of this program,” remarked Ward Koeser, Northwest North Dakota Community Foundation board president. “We have seen how beneficial investments directly in the professional development of teachers can be to curb educator burnout, inspire new ways of teaching, and enhance opportunities for students.”
Local educators will be selected through a competitive application process to participate in the 2022 Fellowship program. Applications are now being accepted through Feb. 15.
