The Teaching Fellowship includes:

Admission to a Masters degree program at a partner university
preparation for teacher certification in science, mathematics or technology education
extensive preparation for teaching in a high-need urban or rural secondary school for one full year prior to becoming the teacher-of-record in a science or math classroom
a $30,000 stipend, with tuition arrangements varying by campus in Georgia and New Jersey. (Once Fellows are certified teachers at the end of the first year, they obtain salaried employment in high-need schools.)
support and mentoring throughout the three-year teaching commitment
support of a cohort of WW Fellows passionate about science and math education lifelong membership in a national network of Woodrow Wilson Fellows who are intellectual leaders.


As part of their commitment to ensuring the success of students in high-need secondary schools, Fellows teach for at least three years in an urban or rural school district.
