STEM students/a​lumni can change lives through this fellowship

Do you have  students/alumni with a gift for explaining concepts and a passion for working with young people?  They may be candidates for the  W.K. Kellogg Foundation’s Woodrow Wilson Michigan Teaching Fellowship.

The W.K. Kellogg Foundation’s Woodrow Wilson Michigan Teaching Fellowships seek to attract talented, committed individuals with science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) backgrounds into teaching in high-need schools. Offered through five Michigan campuses—Eastern Michigan University, Michigan State University, University of Michigan, Wayne  State University, and Western Michigan  University—this pioneering program has been recognized by the White House and touted as a model by the U.S. Department of Education.  (Meet Steven Feutz of Grand Rapids, a 2011 WKKF-WW Michigan Teaching Fellow, in this minute-long video clip.)

The Fellowship awards current seniors, recent graduates, and career changers in the STEM fields a $30,000 stipend to complete an intensive  master’s degree program, focusing on a year-long experience in a real-world classroom.  In exchange,  Fellows commit to teach for three years in urban or rural secondary schools, with mentoring and support from both their universities and their schools.  Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowships are now offered not only in Michigan, but also in Indiana, Ohio, and New Jersey.
