LATTICE Fellowship Spring 2020

For MSU Graduate Students and K-12 Educators


Due to the gracious support of the Dean of the Michigan State University Graduate School and our sponsors, LATTICE can support the work of graduate students and educators with fellowships for the spring semester of 2020.

  • LATTICE Fellowship’s objective: To propose and implement a project that is relevant to the core Mission and Vision of LATTICE.

  • Mission: LATTICE is a learning community and international network that cultivates and supports global perspectives and identities in K-12 classrooms through personal and professional development opportunities.


  • Vision: LATTICE will promote a safe and dynamic learning community to share ideas, develop personal relationships and explore controversial topics that permit members to gain global understanding and appreciation of similarities and differences within nationalities, cultures, religions, ethnicities, ages, and professional pursuits.


Awarded projects must include:



  1. The objectives of the project and the guiding question/topic/issue to solve

    • Must be global

    • It can be research, curricular/pedagogical, or an event. Other ideas can be considered as well (e.g., guidance counselors or other educators might have different ideas for meaningful projects)

    • It can be any discipline or grade level

  2. The people involved

    • Must include at least one graduate student and one K-12 educator.

    • We encourage engaging other LATTICE members in a meaningful collaboration

  3. The target audience for implementing the project and how it will be incorporated into K-12 classrooms

  4. Timeline/plan of action and implementation during the spring semester of 2020

  5. Description of deliverable or outcome to be reported in the May session.


The fellowship committee is free to award projects beyond these categories as long as they contribute to the LATTICE mission and vision.


Award amounts

  • For graduate students: up to $1,000 (depending on the number of applicants)

  • For K-12 teachers or educators: $250


Note: The LATTICE Board agreed that it is fair for graduate students to receive a higher amount because most of them are volunteering their time (i.e., not on salary)​
