Hollyhock Fellowship Program
Nearly half of all teachers leave the classroom within five years. In schools that serve low-income students, the turnover is even higher—leaving the most vulnerable students with the least experienced teachers. The Hollyhock Fellowship Program addresses these complicated educational realities by encouraging and supporting highly motivated, early-career high school teachers to persist and thrive in the classroom by providing them with rich learning opportunities with colleagues nationwide.
Applications for Cohort 8 are now closed. Thank you for all of your submissions. We look forward to offering this opportunity again at the end of 2022.
The Hollyhock Fellowship welcomes high school teachers from across the country who are interested in deepening and developing their content-specific instructional practices and creating equitable access and opportunities for all learners in their classrooms. Hollyhock Fellows make a commitment to remain at their current school for the duration of the two-year fellowship so that they can support one another in their professional growth and make an impact at their schools.
