PK-12 Communication Fellows

The Ohio University Scripps College of Communication is proud to launch the Communication Fellows Program that will focus on curriculum development in communication across PK-12 levels of instruction and invites teachers from throughout Ohio to apply.

Innovative educators who want to infuse communication topics into their classrooms are encouraged to apply to the fellowship to receive educational, mentorship and financial support for their proposal. Up to 10 fellows will be named each year, with five from rural Appalachia districts and five from urban districts in the state of Ohio. This program is being established as part of the college’s 50th anniversary celebration in April 2018.

Applications for the 2018 PK-12 Communication Fellows Program are now closed. Please check back next year for a new application!

Meet the first cohort of Communication Fellows!

Our nine 2018 Communication Fellows will attend a summer residential experience at Ohio University’s main campus in Athens on June 10-13 or June 24-27. During their stay fellows will work with college faculty mentors and college leadership to achieve their project proposals. Read more about our 2018 mentors in this PDF.
