We want to remind teachers around the United States that applications for the Naval Historical Foundation 2012 STEM-H Fellowships are due next week: Thursday, 29 March. We are offering fellowships for high school teachers of science, technology, engineering, math and U.S. History to work in teams at the National Museum of the United States Navy in the historic Washington Navy Yard, Washington, DC during three overlapping summer 2012 periods: July 9-20, July 16-27, and July 23-Aug 3. A stipend of $2,000 will be paid to successful applicants for the program, upon fellowship completion. Documented travel expenses, up to $500, will be provided during the first week of the fellowship. The Naval Historical Foundation will arrange and provide local hotel accommodations.
