GrantS & Awards
It is no coincidence that many former SITES instructors go on to successfully apply for grants and fellowships (Fulbright, Watson, etc.) and education-related graduate studies. The skills they learn through SITES are instrumental to their success as educators post-Oberlin and the breadth of opportunities available to them within the field.
