Connecting classrooms to careers

Program Overview

Become a Fellow

For the past 33 years Ignited has placed K-16 teachers in 8-week Fellowships to provide them with exposure to our ever-changing industry and research environments.

Through the Summer Fellowship Program, Ignited provides companies and universities with skilled, cost-effective professional summer workers.  Host organizations experience a direct way to reach their future workforce through one-to-one contact with local teachers.

The Teacher Fellows spend 90% of their time working on meaningful and relevant projects for their Host organization and 10% of their time on Ignited professional development including an Education Transfer Plan to bring back to their classroom. Ignited Teachers return to school able to leverage their new skills and experiences into powerful lessons and updated curriculum for their students.
