The Selection Committee chooses the Fellows by the end of January. Successful nominees are informed by telephone by Dr. Debra Dawson immediately after. Unsuccessful nominees will receive feedback letters from Dr. Dawson as soon as possible after that.

The official announcement of the new cohort will appear on the STLHE website on 15 February.

The new Fellows are invited into the Fellowship at the STLHE conference in June.

The new Fellows attend a four-day retreat at The Château Montebello in November.

Once again, we sincerely thank you for your interest in the 3M National Teaching Fellowship. We hope the dossier you prepare now will bring into the light our next 3M Fellow!
