AGS Geography Teacher Fellow Update


Every year, we invite Teacher Fellows to engage in a year-long development program with the American Geographical Society to broaden their geographic and geospatial knowledge. A major highlight of the fellowship is attending the annual Geography 2050 Symposium at Columbia University in New York. Fellows have the opportunity to convene with thought leaders from academia, government, industry, and the social sector to discuss the major forces that will shape our planet’s future and how they can transfer that information to a classroom setting.

In 2021, we offered the Melamid Teacher Fellow Workshop. The workshop is funded with an endowment generously given by Mrs. Ilse Melamid, a long-time supporter of AGS. This endowment will provide for future workshops for APHG teachers following the annual fall symposium.

Teacher Fellows Initiative Update

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, AGS hosted virtual symposia in 2020 and 2021 and temporarily suspended the Teacher Fellows program. AGS looks forward to welcoming a new class of Fellows at our next in-person symposium.
