Connecting classrooms to careers


Summer Fellowship Program

Ignited partners with companies and university labs to provide K-16 educators with full-time summer fellowships bringing modern and engaging real-world examples to the classroom! 

  • Work full-time (280 hours) on a real corporate or research project.
  • Partner with an experienced Ignited Coach to turn what you learn into a curriculum.
  • Bring your curriculum into your classroom the following school year.
  • Earn $9,800 for completing all fellowship components (work, curriculum & surveys).

The Summer Fellowship Program is competitive; educators that maintain strong engagement throughout the application and position-matching process are typically the ones who are selected by companies and university labs for projects. Applications open in December, positions begin to be filled in March, and fellowship projects begin in June.
