The W.K. Kellogg Foundation's Woodrow Wilson Michigan Teaching Fellowship seeks to attract talented, committed individuals with backgrounds in the STEM fields—science, technology, engineering, and mathematics—into teaching in high-need Michigan secondary schools. Learn more.
The Teaching Fellowship is administered by the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation and is funded with a $16.7 million grant from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation. The Teaching Fellowship offers rigorous pedagogical preparation, extensive clinical immersion in secondary classrooms, and ongoing mentoring. Leadership from the Governor's office is also a key part of the program.
The Teaching Fellowship includes:
- admission to a master's degree program at a well-established partner university
- 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 $30,000 stipend (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 who are intellectual leaders
The Fellowship is open to college seniors, graduates, and career changers who:
- have majored in and/or have a strong professional background in a STEM field (science, technology, engineering, or math);
- demonstrate a commitment to the program and its goals;
- have U.S. citizenship or permanent residency;
- have attained, or expect to attain by June 30, 2013, a bachelor's degree from an accredited U.S. college or university;
- a cumulative undergraduate grade point average (GPA) of 3.0 or better on a 4.0 scale is preferred*
* Note: Candidates who can demonstrate excellence through other avenues will also be considered. All applications are considered in their entirety and selection is based on merit.
