United World Schools, Nepal Teaching Fellowship Program

Deadline: 25th March 2018

UWS Nepal initiated the Teaching Fellowship Program in early 2017. It is a two-year graduate placement program aimed at Nepali scholars who are seeking experience in teaching, community action and international development. This program aims to tackle the issues of substandard education environment in rural regions by placing a trained UWS Fellow in UWS aided community schools.

The Fellowship program provides children from marginalized communities to get connected with Nepal’s exceptionally bright, accomplished, enthusiastic individuals across the nation. The Fellows will have an opportunity to “teach the unreached” alongside personal development. This fellowship program provides skills, knowledge and tools to serve as a full-time teacher for children deprived of quality education. Through this experience of teaching and working with students, parents, and community leaders the fellows will be exposed to the grass root realities of Nepal’s education system. The Fellows will have a starting platform for their own careers and broaden their association as a leader, building a larger movement for systemic change towards educational equity in Nepal.

Fellowship Objectives
The program aims to achieve the following broader objectives:

  • To enhance the quality of education delivered in rural Nepal through modern teaching methodology
  • To create a meaningful connection between students, teachers, parents and community leaders, understanding each others’ problems through cooperation and collaboration
  • To produce leaders who can make a life-long commitment to addressing educational inequality, by teaching in poor and marginalized communities for at least two years
  • To improve the learning environment and life skills of rural children
