Subject: Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowship

Description:
The Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowship seeks to attract talented, committed
individuals with backgrounds in the STEM fields—science, technology,
engineering, and mathematics—into teaching in high-need secondary schools
in Georgia and New Jersey.  Eligible applicants include current
undergraduates, recent college graduates, midcareer professionals, and
retirees who have majored in, or have extensively studied, one or more of the
STEM fields.


The Teaching Fellowship includes:

--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
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

As part of their commitment to ensuring the success of students in high-need
secondary schools, Fellows teach for at least three years in an urban or
rural school district. Continuation as a teacher of record is contingent on
the Fellow's completing the master's degree and obtaining appropriate
teaching licensure.

Deadline is January 23. For more information and to apply, visit
