Kenan Fellow Jeff Milbourne has been selected for the 2014-15 Albert Einstein Distinguished Educator Fellowship Program. Mr. Milbourne is one of 14 new science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) educators from across the United States to be awarded the competitive fellowship.
He is the third Kenan Fellow to be selected for the prestigious national program. Kenan Fellows Rebecca Hite and Sam Wheeler were awarded Einstein Fellowships in 2012-13.
Mr. Milbourne said his Kenan Fellowship acted as a stepping stone to the Einstein Fellowship. "Kenan Fellows Program activities helped spark an interest in broader educational issues like policy," he said. "The program also connected me with an exceptional group of colleagues who introduced me to unique opportunities like the Einstein Fellowship."
