InspirED Global Fellowship Application (InspirED 2.0)
The InspirED Global Fellowship brings educators across Nevada together to study successful global innovations in learning and use design thinking to collaboratively reimagine what is possible across all layers of our education system. By working with leaders at the state department of education, in local districts, and alongside our community - InspirED Global Fellows will challenge assumptions about what may be possible for the future of learning. With a policy edge, this year’s focus will be on the role of the educator in designing equitable and joyful learning. What might we create together to move Nevada education ahead? Grab your colleagues, apply as a team (of three innovative and collaborative leaders), and join us!

Please contact Dr. Tonia Holmes-Sutton of Nevada Succeeds at with any inquiries you may have about the InspirED Global Fellowship.

(Note: The application deadline is August 16, 2021 11:59 pm. Final selections will be made by August 31, 2021.)
