Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowship

 

Description

The Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowship recruits and prepares the nation's best and brightest recent graduates and career changers with STEM backgrounds to teach in high-need secondary schools. The program provides candidates with a generous stipend ($30,000) to complete a master's degree in education at one of our partner institutions in Georgia or New Jersey. Once Fellows are certified as teachers at the end of their first year of coursework and clinical experience, they commit to teach for 3 years in a high-need urban or rural secondary school. All Fellows spend one full year in extensive preparation for teaching in this specific academic setting prior to becoming a teacher-of-record with salaried employment. Each Fellow receives intensive support and mentoring throughout the three-year teaching commitment and obtains lifelong membership in a national network of Woodrow Wilson Fellows who are intellectual leaders.
