The Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowship, now offered in Ohio, Indiana,
Michigan, and New Jersey, seeks to attract talented, committed individuals
with science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) backgrounds
into teaching in high­need secondary schools. This pioneering program has
been recognized by the White House and touted as a model by the U.S.
Department of Education.
 
The Fellowship offers current seniors, recent graduates, and career
changers in the STEM fields a $30,000 stipend to complete an intensive
master's degree program that focuses on a year-long experience in a
real-world classroom. In exchange, Fellows commit  to teach for three
years in high­need secondary urban or rural schools, with mentoring and
support from both their universities and their schools throughout their
three-year commitment.
 
The Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellows are also part of the larger
international network of Woodrow Wilson Fellows, a select group of 21,000
intellectual leaders who have received the Foundation's support over the
past seven decades. Since 1945, the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship
Foundation has worked to identify and develop leaders and institutions to
meet the nation's critical challenges.
 
Today, there is no more urgent national need in education than to bring
exceptionally able math and science teachers into high-need schools. Your
students and alumni who have strong backgrounds in these fields can make a
powerful difference in the lives of thousands of children, and in the
nation's future.
 
Please help us promote the program by sharing this exciting opportunity.
