Summary of the IISME Summer Fellowship Program

The Silicon Valley Leadership Group is a proud partner with the Industry Initiatives for Science and Math Education (IISME).  Each year IISME has placed K-16 teachers in 8-week fellowships to provide them with unique, meaningful professional development by exposing them to today’s industry and research environments. IISME provides companies and universities with skilled, cost-effective professional summer employees.  Sponsors pledge to host specific numbers of fellows and identify mentors/managers who will supervise teachers.  By directly working with fellowship sponsors, the IISME Summer Fellowship Program produces well-trained and experienced teachers who are prepared to instill meaningful change and progress in our schools.
