Kohl Teacher Fellowship Program

The purpose of the Herb Kohl Teacher Fellowship program is to recognize and support teaching excellence and innovation in the State of Wisconsin, USA.  Our goal is to support teachers in the pursuit of their unrealized goals for their classrooms or professional development.  Annually, the Foundation awards one hundred Wisconsin teachers with $6,000 Kohl Fellowship grants, and each Kohl Fellowship recipient's school receives a matching $6,000 grant.  Recipients' professional accomplishments are celebrated at a recognition luncheon in the spring.  Wisconsin's religious and independent schools receive a proportionate number of the total fellowships awarded each year.

To be eligible to compete for a fellowship, a teacher must be nominated by a: 
* parent
