Wilson (Woodrow) Teaching Fellowship

The Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowship offers recent graduates and career changers in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) a stipend of $30,000 to complete a specially designed, cutting-edge master’s degree program, in exchange for a commitment to teach for three years in high-need secondary urban or rural schools in Georgia, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, and New Jersey. The program provides Fellows with this stipend to help offset the cost of tuition and living expenses during a full-time year of master’s study and to help support Fellows in their preparation for teaching, including in-depth classroom experience, in one of several universities and their teacher education programs. Fellows attend classes and complete their clinical year as a cohort with other STEM-oriented Teaching Fellows.

Application Deadline: January 31, 2018 

Eligibility:

  • have majored in and/or have 30 or more college-level credits in a STEM field (science, technology, engineering, or math);

  • have attained, or expect to attain by June 30, 2018, a bachelor’s degree from an accredited U.S. college or university or its international equivalent (Note: Undergraduate degrees earned outside the U.S. are accepted if an approved credential evaluator declares the degree equivalent to an earned U.S. bachelor’s degree.);
