For your students, friends, or colleagues who want to use their math or science knowledge with the young people who need them most, the Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowship offers an unparalleled opportunity. Please consider sharing this email with anyone you think would be a good candidate.
For top applicants, this prestigious fellowship offers a $30,000 stipend toward completion of a master’s degree program at a Woodrow Wilson partner institution in Georgia, Indiana, or New Jersey. Fellows prepare through a year-long clinical experience in a high-need school, along with rigorous subject matter courses, then commit to teach for three years in urban or rural secondary schools, with mentoring throughout the entire process.
The most successful Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellows come to us through a recommendation from a trusted source–a professor or colleague like you. Again, we hope you will pass this email along to your students or recent grads who you think would be strong applicants and encourage them to apply. The 2015 Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowship program application deadline is January 31, 2015. For more information, please visit http://woodrow.org/teach. You can also download a poster for the Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowship.
Thanks for giving this opportunity some thought. We look forward to hearing from any candidates you can refer to us.
