Bread Loaf School of English

The Academy for Teachers is modeled on The Bread Loaf School of English, at Middlebury College, where passionate students, most of them teachers, take inspiring classes in a beautiful mountain setting.

Full scholarships of $10,000, offered jointly by The Academy and Bread Loaf, will be awarded to Fellows of The Academy for Teachers who show a passion for literature, a love of creativity, and a devotion to teaching. We hope that six weeks among kindred spirits—reading, discussing, writing, playing—will send them into the next school year rejuvenated.

Applicants must be Academy for Teachers Fellows and full-time teachers, of any subject, in a New York City metro-area school. Applicants need not pursue a degree at Bread Loaf.

Preference will be given to applicants who have not previously attended the Bread Loaf School of English.
