The Marion & Jasper Whiting Foundation awards fellowships to present and prospective teachers, with an emphasis on present teachers at the college or university level, to enable them to study abroad or at some other location(s) other than that which they are most closely associated. The aim is to stimulate and broaden the minds of teachers to improve and enhance the quality of their instruction.
