The Gerstacker Fellowship Program will annually provide a dozen aspiring school leaders with a demanding curriculum over a one-year period. Participants will be required to complete the following to successfully earn the distinction of being a "Gerstacker Fellow."
Two consecutive semesters of study
Fall Semester (August-November)
Winter Semester (January-June)
One weekend session per month
Fridays (4:00 - 9:00 p.m.)
Saturdays (9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.)
Complete the international capstone experience, which will take the participants and an SVSU faculty mentor on a 10-17 day visit to one or more of SVSU's sister universities in Asia or Europe.
Participation in the Gerstacker Fellowship Program is supported by an endowment created by the Gerstacker Foundation. There is no cost to Program participants, unless they choose the option to participate for graduate credit.
