EUnited Teacher Fellows Program

This fellowship aims to help teachers go deep with their knowledge of Europe and the European Union. It offers CES the opportunity to accompany teachers on their learning journey, and create lasting relationships with engaged educators. It will allow teachers to find new ways to infuse EU content into their classrooms, and in turn increase young people’s understanding of Europe and the EU.
