Woodrow Wilson STEM Teaching Fellowships

State-based programs (currently in Georgia) that seek to attract talented individuals with backgrounds in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics into teaching in high-need high schools.


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. (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. Continuation as a teacher of record is contingent on the Fellow's completing the master's degree and obtaining appropriate teaching licensure.
