The Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowships
Pennsylvania (Desktop Version)
The Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowship program recruits and trains the nation’s best and brightest recent graduates and career changers with STEM backgrounds to teach in middle and high school science and math classrooms.
ABOUT THE FELLOWSHIP
The Teaching Fellowship includes:
- admission to a master’s degree program at a partner university [desktop version]
- 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 $32,000 stipend, with tuition arrangements varying by partner universities in Pennsylvania. (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 [desktop version] 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.
