EdHub Fellowship by EdHub STL

The Education Hub (EdHub STL) is a dedicated physical space where educators work creatively to solve our region’s most entrenched educational issues. Through programs, events and scholarship, we facilitate convenings and connections that lead to the collaborative work of dismantling education inequity.


COVID-19 Update: EdHub is excited to announce the launch of the COVID-19 Repository of Resources for Educators. It is intended to share and distribute practice-based protocol across the region as many are trying to solve the same problems. Specifically, focusing on the curation of processes that teachers/administrators can refer to for day-to-day practice.

The EdHub STL Fellowship empowers education leaders and education “intrapreneurs” to develop and/or expand transformative initiatives with equity at the center. Fellows lead a mission critical project, program or systems change for their school or school district, government education agency, education focused community organization, or education non-profit. Each participant receives mentorship, training from industry leaders, support of The School of Social System Design at Washington University, free office space at CIC (4220 Duncan) over the course of 6 months and have access to funding. Fellows complete the program with an design + implementation plan for effective, equitable and systemic transformation for their program, project, organization or school.
