Make a difference in a student's life with the Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowship

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Woodrow Wilson. All opinions are 100% mine.

I think that we all can agree that education is the key to success in our lives as well as the development of our nation. How many times do we think back to an educator who influenced how we think or helped us achieve a goal? In order to have a strong educational base, we need teachers who are enthusiastic, dedicated and ready for the challenge.

The Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowship is searching for individuals who are willing to inspire children. It is imperative that our children achieve in the areas of science, technology, engineering, and math. It is estimated that by 2015 over 280,000 new math and science teachers will be needed in America’s public school classrooms.  The Woodrow Wilson fellowship program is seeking individuals who are ready and willing to fill this need.

To apply for a fellowship position within this program, a candidate must possess the following criteria:
  • Have completed an undergraduate degree in a STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) field by June 2011.
  • Have graduated with a 3.0 GPA or higher. 
  • have U.S. citizenship or permanent residency
  • Demonstrate a commitment to the program and its goals.
Candidates who meet the above criteria can apply for a fellowship position. The fellowship position provides a $30,000 stipend at participating universities to complete a master's degree. Upon completion of the degree and attaining a teaching license, the fellow will commit to teaching in a high-need secondary urban or rural school.

Some of terms of the fellowship include:
  • 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.
  • Lifelong membership in a national network of Woodrow Wilson Fellows who are intellectual leaders.
If you are interested in the Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowship, applications are being accepted until September 1, 2010.

Teachers can change the world through the education of our youth. Can you accept the challenge?
