Description:The Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowship program supports teaching certification and a masterís degree in a science, technology, engineering, or mathematics (STEM) teaching field for career changers and recent graduates with STEM backgrounds. Fellows receive a stipend to complete a masterís program at a participating university, along with three years of mentoring, and commit to teach for three years in a designated high-need urban or rural secondary school. The goal of the teaching fellowship program is to recruit, train, and retain the nationís best and brightest STEM teachers. Fellows participate in one full-time year of coursework at a partner university of their choice, culminating in teacher certification.

Eligible candidates must have majored in or have 30 or more college-level credits in a STEM field; attained or expect to attain a bachelorís degree from an accredited US college or university by June 30; be US citizens or permanent residents; and demonstrate commitment to the program goals.
