You may have a student or you yourself could be the perfect fit for the Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowship, a pioneering program that prepares outstanding teachers for the schools that need them most.
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.
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.
