Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowship

8/31/2010 01:43:00 PM ·

Here at Friends Revolution we like to provide you with the everyday interesting, and sometimes, helpful tidbits you may not be aware of. Are some of you undergraduates with a degree in education, technology, math, science, or engineering? If the answer is yes, I'd like to inform you, if you haven't thought about Becoming a Teacher, you should seriously consider the possibility.

Tomorrow (September 1, 2010) is the last day to apply for the Woodrow Wilson teaching Fellowship, which provides recent undergraduates of teaching and career changers in STEM fields a $30,000 stipend to complete an intensive master’s degree program at one of fourteen participating universities.

Fellowship candidates must have:

  • A completed undergraduate degree in a STEM field by June 2011.
  • Graduate with a 3.0 GPA or higher.
  • Be willing to commit yourself 100% to the program.
If your qualifications meet the requirements, you will complete a field-based master’s degree in teacher education. Within this time, you will receive intensive support and mentoring in the classroom.

The expectation for you is committing to teach for at least three years in a high-needs school.This may sound like a challenging position and rest assured, it is. You will, however, receive ongoing mentoring through your first year of teaching at a high needs facility. In that time, you will have the opportunity for continuing your education through the university you attended.

It takes a very special person to teach in a high needs institution, however your value as a teacher and the knowledge you will gain by pursuing this type of position, will empower you for your own future goals.
