Teacher nomination forms for the 2017 Herb Kohl Educational Foundation Fellowship awards can now be obtained from school district administrators and principals, or from kohleducation.org/teachers. The deadline for submission is Sept. 23, 2016. Fellowships are $3,000, with an additional $3,000 grant going to the school of each Kohl Fellow. Established in 1990, the Herb Kohl Educational Foundation awards 100 Fellowships annually from among all applicants throughout the state. For teachers to be eligible, they must be nominated by a parent, student, other teacher, community member or school administrator. The Herb Kohl Educational Foundation Fellowship rewards teachers who have demonstrated superior ability to inspire love of learning in their students, have motivated others, and have provided meritorious service both in and outside the classroom. Selection of recipients will be made by a state-level panel composed of representatives from the Wisconsin Newspaper Association, cooperative educational service agencies, Wisconsin Council of Religious and Independent Schools, several education-related associations, and community representatives. Since the program was established in 1990, the Herb Kohl Foundation has awarded 2,700 fellowships to teachers and 2,700 grants to their schools throughout the state for a total of $6.2 million.
