Applications for the Massachusetts Policy Fellowship are Open!


Applications for the Massachusetts Policy Fellowship are now open!

Are you interested in growing as an educator and professional? Do you want to have a voice in the decisions impacting your profession? Consider applying today for this year long, paid teacher leadership opportunity! Feel free to share this opportunity and nominate educators you think might be interested!

What is the Massachusetts Policy Fellowship?

The Massachusetts Policy Fellowship is a highly selective leadership opportunity for outstanding teachers looking to deepen your knowledge of education policy and gain a voice in decisions that affect your students and the teaching profession. The fellowship is open to teachers in the Greater Boston area and to teachers across Massachusetts.

·        Fellows receive training through expert-led modules and direct engagement with experts in education policy and key decision makers. No prior policy experience required. 

·        Fellows expand their influence without leaving the classroom.

·        Fellows stay focused on their classroom and minimize disruptions to their instruction by using a blended learning approach with a combination of monthly virtual and live meetings held after school, or during the weekend. 

·        Fellows receive a $1,500 stipend for their commitment.


Teach Plus seeks a cohort of teachers who reflect the cultural and geographic diversity of Massachusetts. Apply to the policy fellowship if you:​

·        Are a current teacher of record (ECE-Grade 12) with at least two full years of teaching experience by August 2024.

·        Have a track record of success teaching students in traditional public or charter schools in Massachusetts.

·        Are ready to dedicate your time and energy to learning about policy and advocating on behalf of changes that impact your students — while continuing to teach full time.

·        Have a passion for sharing the diverse perspectives and experiences of students and teachers with policy makers.


Applications are due on May 27, 2024.
