NOTE: 2012-2013 STEM Institute and STARs Fellows are not able to apply to the 2013-2014 Siemens STEM Institute or STARs programs. Previous Fellows must wait one year to reapply.
The selection process is based upon the responses on the application form, recommendation form, and school and community demographics. The Siemens Foundation's goal is to provide opportunities to educators from a broad spectrum of schools to include diversity in size, school type (private/public, rural/urban), and socioeconomic backgrounds of student populations and communities. Teachers from all venues of schools and communities are encouraged to apply.
