This Fellowship from the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation seeks to recruit talented college graduates and mid-career professionals to teaching in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (the STEM fields).
Woodrow Wilson’s Teaching Fellowship offers rigorous teaching preparation, extensive clinical experience, and ongoing mentoring, as well as a $30,000 stipend. These Woodrow Wilson Fellows will be STEM scholars and experts—outstanding college juniors and seniors majoring in these fields, recent college graduates, and second-career professionals—interested in teaching in high-need middle or secondary schools.
Accepted Fellows will begin their studies in summer 2013 in a master’s degree program at institutions in Indiana, Michigan, and Ohio. In exchange, Fellows will commit to teaching math or science in a high-need middle or high school for three years upon completing the master’s degree and teaching certification.
The intent of this program is both to bring talented people into teaching in much-needed areas and also to help elevate the status of the profession. Fellows from various Woodrow Wilson programs have gone on to achieve international recognition as intellectual leaders and top scholars, including 13 Nobel Laureates, 35 MacArthur “genius grant” Fellows, and two Fields Medalists in mathematics. The Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellows will become lifelong members of this network of scholars and intellectual leaders.
