Hop on over to www.wwteachingfellowship.org to apply for the Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowship. Deadline is September 1st, so you will want to hurry! Here’s what the fellowship is and who will qualify:
The Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowship provides recent college graduates and career changers with a $30,000 stipend to complete an intensive master’s degree program at one of fourteen participating universities. In return for the $30,000 stipend, they ask that you dedicate 3 years after you graduate to teach in a high-need school.
Competitive candidates for the Fellowship will:
Have completed an undergraduate degree in a STEM field by June 2011. STEM fields include science, technology, engineering, or math.
Have graduated with a 3.0 GPA or higher.
Demonstrate a commitment to the program and its goals.
Fellows who get the stipend will:
Complete a field-based master’s degree in teacher education.
Commit to teach for at least three years in a high-need school.
Receive intensive support and mentoring in the classroom.
This is a great way to get your master’s degree paid for, while in return turning around and donating time to schools in need. A win-win for everyone! Make sure to apply before Sept. 1st! I sometimes wish I had gone on to get my master’s degree, but with two young toddlers I have never quite made it there. If I did, education would be my field of choice as I have always wanted to be a teacher. I hope you get this great opportunity!
