Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowships
The Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowship seeks to attract talented, committed individuals with science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) backgrounds—including current undergraduates, recent college graduates, midcareer professionals, and retirees—into teaching in high-need secondary schools. A qualified applicant should: demonstrate a commitment to the program and its goals; have U.S. citizenship or permanent residency; have attained, or expect to attain, a bachelor’s degree from an accredited U.S. college or university; have majored in and/or have a strong professional background in a STEM field; and have achieved a cumulative undergraduate GPA of 3.0 or better on a 4.0 scale. The Fellowship includes: a $30,000 stipend, admission to a master’s degree program at a participating university, support and mentoring throughout the three-year teaching commitment, and guidance toward teaching certification. As part of their commitment to ensuring the success of students in high-need secondary schools, Fellows teach for at least three years in an urban or rural school district.
