Mead Leadership Fellowships

About the Award   

This scholarship is provided to support an individual in the development of a project that contributes to the foreign language teaching profession and advances quality language instruction. The Mead program was created to develop future leaders for the profession at the state, regional, and national levels.

Educators of ALL LANGUAGES at ALL LEVELS are encouraged to apply to this program, designed to identify potential leaders in education and to support the development of their potential. Each scholarship recipient will be assigned a mentor with expertise in the area of that person’s project, and NECTFL will facilitate virtual and, if possible, face-to-face meetings of the two.


How to Apply

Please note the tighter timeline this year due to earlier conference dates. Please see the application packet for complete details.

  • Applications must be submitted to NECTFL by a state association and must therefore be received by the state association’s posted deadline. Applications must be submitted to state associations by (tbd). 
  • State associations are requested to select their winner and submit his or her dossier to NECTFL by (tbd). Dossiers should be shared electronically via Google Drive with info@nectfl.org.
