Teacher Fellowship Eligibility

Formal and informal educators from any country are welcome to apply. EPI's curriculum is best suited to educators teaching science and creative writing, history, and more. The program is suited for educators at the middle school, high school or university level, and applications from these educators are strongly preferred. Applications from educators in any subject are welcome.
