Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowship Program for STEM Graduates

The Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowship program recruits and trains the nation's best and brightest recent graduates and career changers with STEM backgrounds to teach in high-needs middle and high school science and math classrooms. We are currently recruiting for our 2015 cohorts in Indiana, New Jersey, Ohio and Georgia.  We seek opportunities to recruit individuals without a teaching background. Our primary targeted demographic are individuals with a STEM background (academic or professional).  The program offers:
  •  admission to a master's degree program at a partner university
  • preparation for teacher certification in science, mathematics or technology education
  • extensive preparation for teaching in a high-need urban or rural secondary school for one full year prior to becoming the teacher-of-record in a science or math classroom
  •  a $30,000 stipend, with tuition arrangements varying by campus in Georgia, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, and New Jersey. (Once Fellows are certified teachers at the end of the first year, they obtain salaried employment in high-need schools.)
  • support and mentoring throughout the three-year teaching commitment
  • support of a cohort of WW Fellows passionate about science and math education
  • lifelong membership in a national network of Woodrow Wilson Fellows who are intellectual leaders
We are available to provide more information and are seeking ways to connect with STEM advisors, faculty and students.  For more information, contact Lindsay Smith (lsmith@woodrow.org609-452-7007 x187www.woodrow.org/teach)
