Some of your students could be the perfect fit for the Woodrow
Wilson Teaching Fellowship, a pioneering program
that prepares outstanding teachers for the schools that need them
The Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowship, now offered in Georgia,
Indiana and New Jersey, recruits current seniors, recent grads, and
alumni with backgrounds in STEM (science, technology, engineering and
math) to teach in high-need secondary schools. Fellows receive a
generous stipend ($30,000-32,000) to complete a
master's degree program that includes a full school year of
experience in local high-need classrooms. In turn, they commit to
teach for three years in high-need secondary urban or rural schools.
They also get mentoring and support from both their universities and
their schools throughout their three-year commitment.
You know who your strongest students are. You also know which ones
might have the skills and the passion for STEM to work with young
people in high-need schools—the young people who may someday be your
college students, if they first have good high school teachers, and
who may miss a lifetime of opportunities if they don’t.
If you’re picturing two or three of your top students or recent grads
with those young people who so urgently need them, please pass this
email on to those you think would be strong applicants. And encourage
them to apply early—it’s a very competitive process. The 2015 Woodrow
Wilson Teaching Fellowship program offers three application
deadlines: October 16, 2015 (Round 1); November 30, 2015 (Round 2);
and January 31, 2016 (Round 3). We also offer webinars
throughout the year for those interested in learning more about the
program. You can learn more at woodrow.org/STEM.
Thanks for giving this opportunity some thought. We hope to hear from
