The 2017 Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowship competition is under way, with two more application deadlines available for interested candidates: November 29 and January 23.
As many of you know, the WW Teaching Fellowships offer intensive master’s-level teacher preparation, including a year of classroom experience, for exceptionally qualified candidates. Eligible applicants may be graduating seniors or recent grads/alumni; they should have a commitment to teaching in the urban and rural schools that most often lack strong STEM teachers; and they must have completed STEM degrees.
The Fellowships are available this year in Georgia and New Jersey (with more states now in the works). Fellows attend a partner institution in one of these states and commit to teach for three years in the same state, but they need not be from that state. Fellows receive a generous stipend ($30,000 or more, depending on location) to complete the master’s program. Throughout their three-year teaching commitment, they continue to receive mentoring and support from both their universities and their schools.
To learn more, take a look at the program’s website, download a poster, attend a webinar, or write directly to Danielle DiFiore, one of our WW Teaching Fellowship recruiters, at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’re always happy to hear from you, and we look forward to applications from your best candidates!
