The Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowships (STEM)

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.

This pioneering program has been recognized by the White House and touted as a model by the U.S. Department of Education.
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.
The Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellows are also part of the larger international network of Woodrow Wilson Fellows, a select group of 21,000 intellectual leaders who have received the Foundation's support over the past seven decades. Since 1945, the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation has worked to identify and develop leaders and institutions to meet the nation's critical challenges.
