Apply Now for the Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowship

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Woodrow Wilson. All opinions are 100% mine.

Good teachers are hard to find, and they are desperately needed. The Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowship is working to attract talented, committed individuals with backgrounds in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (the STEM fields) into teaching in high-need secondary schools in Indiana, Michigan, and Ohio.  Current undergraduates, recent college graduates (3.0 GPA or higher), midcareer professionals, and retirees who have majored in, or had careers in, STEM fields are all eligible to apply.

The fellowship includes a $30,000 stipend and admission into a specially designed master's degree program at one of 14 participating universities.  Fellows will complete a field-based master’s degree in teacher education and commit to teach for at least three years in a high-need school.  During this time they will also receive intensive support and mentoring in the classroom.  The belief is that high-quality preparation and the support that the Fellowship provides will position Fellows for a sustained and successful career in teaching. We get the kind of teachers all of our kids deserve!

The Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowships seeks to recruit, prepare and retain effective teachers for the students and schools who need them most.  Will you be one of them?  Visit to get more information and apply. The application deadline is September 1, 2010.
