Knowles STEM Teaching Fellowship (KSTF)
The Knowles Science Teaching Foundation (KSTF) was established in 1999 to increase the number of high-quality high school science and mathematics teachers with the ultimate goal of improving STEM education in the United States.
The KSTF Teaching Fellowship is a five-year program divided into three phases, with each phase building on the next. During the program, Fellows will receive professional development from experienced educators and financial support for professional development, classroom materials and more.
Approximately 35 individuals are selected each year to receive KSTF Fellowships. We’re looking for dedicated, passionate individuals who are committed to teaching, who demonstrate the potential to develop exemplary teaching practices, and who have the potential to lead and drive change in education.
To be eligible for consideration, individuals must:
have the capacity and determination to commit to teaching as their primary career;
have earned a degree in a major related to the mathematics or science discipline they intend to teach no later than September 1, 2018 (this degree should have been earned no more than 10 years ago);
have earned or will earn a valid state teaching credential/certificate/license that enables them to teach mathematics or science in grades 9-12 in the United States no earlier than January 1, 2013 and no later than September 1, 2018; and
be entering their first or second year as teacher of record during the 2018–2019 academic year.
If you have questions about eligibility, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Teaching Fellows receive financial support in the form of grants or stipends throughout the year. Professional development grants are available to cover the cost of relevant activities, including workshops, mentoring, practitioner inquiry and Fellow observations. Fellows are also eligible for teaching materials grants. Last, Fellows can apply for leadership grants to pursue efforts that will have a positive impact on math and science education beyond their own classroom.
