Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowship
Applicants must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents and committed to teaching in a STEM (science, technology, engineering, or math) field for three years in high-need secondary urban or rural schools in Georgia, Indiana, Michigan, New Jersey, or Ohio after earning a master’s degree. For top applicants, this prestigious fellowship offers a $30,000 stipend toward completion of a master’s degree program at a Woodrow Wilson partner institution in Georgia, Indiana or New Jersey. Fellows undergo a year-long clinical experience in a high-need school, along with rigorous subject matter courses, then commit to teach for three years in urban or rural secondary schools, with mentoring throughout the entire process. Completed applications must be received by the foundation no later than January 31.
While there are no required tests for program admission, accepted Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowship candidates are responsible for passing the appropriate teaching licensure examinations for the state where they would like to teach. Every state has different teacher testing requirements and qualifying scores. The first deadline for applicants is October 16, 2015.
