The Warren Fellowship for Future Teachers, funded by a generous gift from the Naomi and Martin Warren Family Foundation in Houston, Texas, is developing a corps of pre-service educators who want to learn more about the Holocaust and how to effectively teach about it in their classrooms. The Fellowship was created in 2003 and has more than 400 alumni.

The Warren Fellowship’s main objective is to provide new teachers with the necessary historical and pedagogical tools for teaching about the Holocaust from the onset of their teaching careers.  This program will also develop a teacher corps for Holocaust Museum Houston as the Museum continues to expand its educational outreach in Texas and the Southwestern United States. 

Upon being named a Warren Fellow, up to eighteen pre-service teachers and two faculty Fellows will participate in a four-day, virtual summer institute hosted by the Holocaust Museum Houston in Houston, Texas.  This institute is designed to immerse participants in historical and pedagogical issues related to the Holocaust.  Holocaust scholars from across the country will provide historical content, and university faculty and museum educators will provide pedagogical context.
