Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowship

The Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowship, now offered in Ohio, Indiana, Michigan, and New Jersey, seeks to attract talented, committed individuals with science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) backgrounds into teaching in high–need secondary schools.

The Fellowship offers current seniors, recent graduates, and career changers in the STEM fields a $30,000 stipend to complete an intensive master's degree program that focuses on a year-long experience in a real-world classroom. In exchange, Fellows commit to teach for three years in high–need secondary urban or rural schools, with mentoring and support from both their universities and their schools throughout their three-year commitment.
