The Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowship supports teaching certification and a master’s degree in a science, technology, engineering, mathematics (STEM) teaching field for career changers and recent graduates with STEM backgrounds. The goal of the teaching fellowship program is to recruit, train, and retain the nation’s best and brightest STEM teachers. Fellows receive a stipend of $10,000 to complete a specially designed master’s degree program at a participating university, along with three years of mentoring. In turn, they must commit to teach for three years in a designated high-needs urban or rural secondary school. Fellows participate in one full-time year of coursework at a partner university of their choice, culminating in teacher certification. The foundation expects to award up to 12 fellowships at each of the participating institutions. In addition, the foundation will select a number of alternates who may be offered the fellowship if those originally selected choose to decline for any reason. Interested applicants will find this fellowship opportunity on GetEdFunding, a free database sponsored by CDW•G of thousands of funding opportunities for educators.
Deadlines: November 30, 2018, and January 31, 2019, for applications to be reviewed by partner universities
ASM Teacher Materials Camp is a weeklong, idea-generating workshop introducing teachers to methods that will make core math and science principles more enticing and relevant to their middle school and high school students. The materials topics are motivators in any engineering, technology, or science course as students complete projects of personal worth to them.
