Equity Fellowship
CSTA Equity Fellowship
During her keynote address at CSTA 2019, Dr. Joanna Goode announced the launch of CSTA's Equity Fellowship Program. This fellowship is a selective, year-long program designed to develop leadership inequitable teaching practices and advocacy.
We seek to assemble a diverse group of K-12 CS educators who have:
  • Demonstrable success in disrupting the disparities impacting females, underrepresented students of colour, English language learners, and students with special needs
  • The desire for deeper knowledge, skills, experience, and network to develop as a teacher leader
  • Interest in collaborating with a diverse, highly skilled cohort of like-minded leaders to have a broader impact
Approximately 10 fellows will be selected through a competitive application process. Fellows will receive a $2,000 stipend, professional learning opportunities, support in implementing professional development and equity-focused projects, paid trips to conferences and convenings and prominent recognition from CSTA.
The application deadline is August 5th.
