SEED is monitoring the current COVID-19 threat closely. At this time, we intend to conduct our 2020 SEED New Leaders Weeks on the dates currently listed. Should a postponement become necessary, we will roll over to 2021 those who were admitted and paid their deposit (or full fee) for the 2020 cohort. Unless we inform you otherwise, however, our current refund and deferral policy remains in effect. We encourage you to proceed with submitting your applications. Please know that we will remain in regular contact with you as we plan for the summer.
SEED has a new initiative toward justice: prioritizing the participation of public school educators and their school communities. We are therefore offering a $1200 grant to every public school applicant accepted to our New Leaders Week.

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. left a broad legacy of justice that still echoes today. One way to contemplate the values of his life is through a SEED (Seeking Educational Equity and Diversity) lens. The work we do as SEED leaders is informed by some key principles embodied by Dr. King and the women and men who led the Civil Rights Movement with him.
