Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowship

The Woodrow Wilson Foundation is delighted to announce the Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowship. The program is open to all undergraduates, recent college graduates, mid-career professionals, and retirees who have majored in, or have extensively studied, one or more of the STEM fields.

The mission of the fellowship seeks to attract talented, committed individuals with backgrounds in the STEM fields into teaching in high-need secondary schools in Georgia and Pennsylvania.

The winners will receive a stipend of $10,000 to complete a specially designed, cutting-edge master’s degree program, in exchange for a commitment to teaching for three years in high-need secondary urban or rural schools.
