Mead Leadership Fellowships with support from SANS, Inc.
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. It is supported
in part by SANS, Inc., and we are grateful to the company for their contributions to our profession and to NECTFL.
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.
