STEM teaching fellowship deadline approaching

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 schools.

As a WW Teaching Fellow, you will have extraordinary opportunities: innovative, world-class teacher preparation, a full school year of experience in real-world classrooms, and ongoing mentoring support.  In addition, Fellows receive a generous stipend ($30,000-32,000) to complete a master’s degree program.

It’s not too late to apply for our Nov. 30 deadline: you can start your online application here. Our final deadline to apply for the 2016 program is Jan. 31, 2016, but it’s best to apply early!

Curious about the advantages of our clinically based program?

Woodrow Wilson Fellows … begin co-teaching in a high-need school from day one of the fall semester to the end of the academic year.  A licensed teacher and a Woodrow Wilson Fellow work collaboratively, sharing responsibilities for co-planning, designing curriculum, formal and informal assessments, and teaching–which benefits students in the STEM classroom. … The co-teaching experience for our Fellows has worked extremely well.

–Dr. Delphina (Del) Hopkins-Gillispie, Director of Licensure at Valparaiso University

My cooperating teacher has helped me learn about how the classroom functions, gives me advice on any situations with students, and has helped me adjust to a new school. This experience … has been the part of the program that has taught me the most about what teaching in a high-need school is really like.

–Martin Barker, 2014 Woodrow Wilson Indiana Teaching Fellow at Valparaiso University

We are proud that education leaders recognize the impact of the program as an initial teaching certification program for STEM students.
