The Global Education Policy Fellowship Program (GEPFP) is designed to provide experienced education policy leaders and administrators (GEPFP Senior Fellows) with the opportunity to study education policy in the Age of Globalization by investigating education development challenges in economically developed and developing countries. 

The GEPFP is a unique experience open to Education Policy Fellowship Program alumni and other senior level leaders with an interest in global education policy.

Beginning in August 23, 2013, GEPFP Senior Fellows will participate in one, two hour Web-based synchronous seminar each month that focuses on key global policy issues. View tentative schedule.


Fellows will then travel to the United Kingdom from October 18-27, 2013 for an education policy study-tour. During the study-tour, Fellows will participate in briefings with policy and university leaders, school visits and discussion with U.K. educators. Senior Policy Fellows may also conduct an optional education policy analysis on an education policy initiative in the U.K. Following the U.K. study tour, Fellows will participate in two additional Web-based seminars to debrief from the experience and engage in further examination of global education policy topics. The program will conclude in April 25-26, 2013 with a convening in Washington, DC to share policy analyses, insights and experiences.

Why Study Education Policy in the United Kingdom?
We live in an increasingly connected global society.  GEPFP will explore how British education policy in a multicultural, multiracial society can inform the direction of U.S. school improvement efforts. The GEPFP Senior Fellowship experience will include opportunities and access unavailable on typical study tours.

Applications for the 2013-2014 program year -- along with an $750 deposit to secure your spot -- will be received until the cohort is filled. All applications must be received by July 31, 2013 at 5:00 PM. (Note: $500 of the deposit is non-refundable upon cancellation.)
