The Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowship seeks to recruit, prepare and retain effective teachers for the students and schools who need them most. It is open to individuals- college seniors, recent graduates, and career changers- with undergraduate degrees particulalry in the sciences. Fellows will attend enriched, school-based master's level teacher education programs, complemented by intensive mentoring during the first three years of teaching at high-need urban and rural schools. The Fellowship focuses on four goals: transforming teacher education; getting strong teachers into high-need schools; attracting the very best candidates to the teaching profession; and cutting teacher attrition by retaining top teachers.
The WWTF seeks to attract talented, committed individuals with backgrounds in the STEM fields- science, technology, engineering and mathematics- into teaching in high-need secondary schools in Indiana, Michigan and Ohio.
