Have a passion for science, technology, engineering or math? Ever consider a career in teaching?

We can help.

The Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowship recruits the nation's best and brightest recent college graduates and career changers in STEM fields (science, technology, engineering, or math) with a $10,000 stipend to complete an intensive yearlong master's degree program in teaching at one of Woodrow Wilson's partner universities in Georgia.

How the Fellowship works:

  • Fellows are admitted into a master's degree program at a well-established partner university.
  • Each Fellow receives a generous stipend. Once Fellows are certified teachers at the end of the first year, they obtain salaried employment in high-need schools.
  • Fellows complete a field-based master's degree program in teacher education, as well as obtain teacher certification in one of the STEM fields.
  • All Fellows spend one full school year in extensive preparation for teaching in a high-need urban or rural secondary school prior to becoming the teacher-of-record.
  • Fellows commit to teaching for at least three years in a high-need school.
  • Fellows receive intensive support and mentoring throughout the three-year teaching commitment.
  • Fellows become lifelong members in a national network of Woodrow Wilson Fellows.

Partner universities in Georgia:

  • Columbus State University, Columbus, GA
  • Mercer University, Macon, GA

Deadlines: November 30, 2018 and January 31, 2019.

Your application to the Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowship doubles as an application to a master's program at one of our partner institutions. There is no fee to apply. While Fellows are notified of their acceptance within two months of each deadline date, all new Fellows (regardless of acceptance date) will begin the Fellowship program in summer 2019.
