Teacher Fellowships

2018 Fellowship Opportunities

The National World War I Museum and Memorial is partnering with exceptional institutions to offer two learning opportunities for teachers this summer.


World War I and Its Aftermath

The Museum and The Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History are offering a special week-long Teacher Seminar July 15-21, 2018: World War I and Its Aftermath. Detailed information, including a link for applications, will be available on the Gilder Lehrman website.

This seminar features Dr. Jay Winter, who will examine the origins, scope, and consequences of World War I with a particular emphasis on the revolution in violence between 1914 and 1918, the obliteration of the distinction between military and civilian targets, the failed peace settlement, and the patterns of remembrance.

This is a highly competitive program. Chosen participants will receive a week of in-depth content knowledge shared by Dr. Winter, Gilder Lehrman Master Teacher Fellows and members of the Museum Collections and Education staff, limited travel reimbursement, as well as hotel accommodations and meals.

The seminar will take place at the Museum in Kansas City, Mo.



The United States and World War I

The Museum is also proud to partner with the Harry S Truman Presidential Library and Museum for The United States and World War I Teacher Conference, which will take place July 16-20, 2018 at the Truman Library in Independence, Mo. Additional information is available on the Truman Library website.

Applications are due February 1, 2018. This is a competitive program.
