The Fellowship provides up to $24,000 toward graduate study leading to a master’s degree at any accredited institution in the US (degrees could include MA, Master of Arts in Teaching, or MEd). Join us to learn more about the program, application process, and gain insights into the Fellow experience from Madison Fellow alumni Russell Cannon, UW Bothell’s Director of Institutional Research, and May Wong, teacher in the Kent School District!
