Expand Your Global Awareness as a Grosvenor Teacher Fellow

After a two-year hiatus, the Grosvenor Teacher Fellowship will return to host educators aboard Lindblad Expeditions’ voyages for a life-changing, field-based experience.

Geography is an approach to understanding and engaging with the world around us. The geographic perspective is at the core of our work at the National Geographic Society. It’s a way of looking at the world, a way of understanding why things are where they are and how people’s movements and cultural, social, and political interactions affect us all.

The Grosvenor Teacher Fellowship is a professional development opportunity for pre-K–12 educators, made possible by a partnership between Lindblad Expeditions and the National Geographic Society. The competitive annual application process awards a no-cost professional development opportunity to teachers who demonstrate excellence in geography education. Find more details on the goals, requirements, and eligibility for the fellowship here.

Grosvenor Teacher Fellows are an integral part of the National Geographic community, working to further students’ understanding of the planet and empower them to generate solutions for a healthier and more sustainable future.

The application for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity is opening in the next few weeks! Check the Grosvenor Teacher Fellowship webpage for the latest information.

The fellowship combines exploration, research, technology, and conservation into an extraordinary professional development experience. Fellows are exemplary educators who complete a series of deliverables in which they transform their onboard experience into new ways to teach students and engage colleagues. Through this opportunity, Grosvenor Teacher Fellows bring new geographic awareness into their learning environments and communities.

Fellows also take on a two-year leadership commitment to support National Geographic’s education initiatives. Throughout their commitment, fellows may be asked to conduct webinars, participate in meetups, and serve as mentors to other educators.

The fellowship was founded by Sven-Olof Lindblad in honor of Gilbert M. Grosvenor, former chairman of the National Geographic Society, in recognition of his decades-long work supporting pre-K–12 educators and promoting geography education across the United States and Canada.

  1. Phenomenal opportunity to see the world with a different lens and bring it back to the students… To create long lasting friendships with other teachers and empower one another is just as impactful.
