As an advocate for strong education in the United States, this is definitely something I can get behind: The Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowship.
Are you a current or aspiring Science or Math teacher with an undergrad degree? You can help our young students excel in these fields and further your education through the Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowship.
The Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowship provides recent college graduates and career changers in STEM fields (science, technology, engineering, or math) with a $30,000 stipend to complete an intensive master’s degree program at one of fourteen participating universities.
Here is an exciting and inspiring video that explains how the program is working:
Competitive candidates will:
– Have completed an undergraduate degree in a STEM field by June 2011.
– Have graduated with a 3.0 GPA or higher.
– Demonstrate a commitment to the program and its goals.
– Complete a field-based master’s degree in teacher education.
– Commit to teach for at least three years in a high-need school.
– Receive intensive support and mentoring in the classroom.
American children are currently falling behind the rest of the world in math and science. As our future leans toward technology-dependent jobs in alternative energy, we will need strong, confident and intelligent students in the math and science disciplines to keep up and hopefully push us ahead of the rest of the world.
The Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowships seeks to recruit, prepare and retain effective teachers for the students and schools who need them most.
