Arts Education Down Under – Astor Fellows: All-Expense-Paid International Travel for New York City Teachers

NYU Steinhardt invites applications to its third annual Astor International Travel Fellowship for New York City Teachers, an all-expense-paid travel opportunity for teachers with at least three years of teaching experience. NYU Steinhardt’s focus on culture, education and human development, has transformed education for social change for more than 125 years. We are a proud sponsor of this opportunity, made possible through the generous gift of Mrs. Brooke Astor, philanthropist and supporter of New York City public school teachers.

This year we will select a cohort of 12 teachers through a competitive application process to explore the theme, “Arts Education Down Under” in Sydney, Australia for ten days this coming summer. Teachers of art, music, and drama are especially encouraged to apply for this year’s program, but all applicants will be considered. Educators will learn about arts education initiatives from leading Australian arts educators; participate in workshops on teaching artistry, curriculum planning, and assessment; and observe arts education in Australian classrooms. Visits to cultural sites in and around Sydney are also planned.

Join us on October 16, 4:00-8:00pm for a symposium featuring our 2015 Astor Fellows, as they present about their experience exploring “Special Education Beyond Borders” in Buenos Aires, Argentina. The symposium will take place at NYU Steinhardt’s Pless Hall, 82 Washington Square East, 1st Floor Lounge. Click here to RSVP.
