Deadline approaching: STEM Teaching Fellowship opportunity

Dear Colleague:

If you have students, friends, or colleagues who want to put their math or science knowledge to work for the young people who need them most, the Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowship Program is an unparalleled opportunity.

For top applicants, this prestigious fellowship offers a generous stipend ($30,000-32,000) 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.

The most successful Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellows come to us through a recommendation from a trusted source–a professor or colleague like you. Please pass this email to your students or recent grads you think would be strong applicants and encourage them to apply. The 2016 Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowship program application deadline is January 31, 2016. For more information, please visit http://woodrow.org/teach. You can also download a poster for the Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowship.

Thanks for giving this opportunity some thought. We look forward to hearing from any candidates you can refer to us.

All best,
Jose Ochoa
Director, Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowships

 

Curious about the advantages of our clinically-based program?
“The yearlong clinical experience is easily the most valuable part of the WW Teaching Fellowship. To be able to be in the classroom every single day from the first day of school to the last day of school allowed me to be exposed to so many different situations where I was able to learn and grow. By the end of the year, my mentor teacher had stepped back and I was effectively the teacher and my students saw me as such. It allowed me to become extremely comfortable with leading a classroom full of a variety of learners.”

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. Start your online application today.
