New National Afterschool Matters Fellowship from NIOST

NEW! National Afterschool Matters Fellowship

Offered by the National Institute on Out-of-School Time and the National Writing Project. 

The National Afterschool Matters (NASM) Fellowship is for mid-career OST, education, or youth development professionals who demonstrate a commitment to the field. NASM fellows are selected by application, and over a two-year process engage in reflection, inquiry and writing activities that position them to inform and contribute to the quality of OST programs, practice, and the broader field.

One of the unique aspects of the NASM Fellowship is the use of technology as a platform for learning:

  • Fellows will meet virtually in small groups with a facilitator on a monthly basis. 
  • Email will be utilized regularly and fellows will be required to post to or read materials that are located on a custom shared site.

    In addition, the fellowship includes two retreats held in Wellesley, MA (travel stipend provided), one in the fall of 2015 and the second in the fall of 2016. 

    Application deadline is June 15, 2015. To learn more about the fellowship and to access the application, please visit the NIOST website.  Learn more>>
