WW Teaching Fellowship

Many students are facing unanticipated challenges during this uncertain time. Some graduating seniors are rethinking their plans or making different choices about their career paths.

For those with degrees in science or math, teaching might be a next step. Through the Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowship, they can receive a $32,000 stipend, discounted tuition, and mentoring.

A few spots are still open at West Chester University, where WW Teaching Fellows complete a clinically based preparation program for STEM teachers that leads to a master’s degree. The program focuses on preparing teachers for success in high-need middle or high schools in the School District of Philadelphia.

All interested candidates should complete their applications by April 24. For questions about the application process or eligibility, candidates can reach out to Neema Ndiba at ndiba@woodrow.org. A digital brochure can be accessed here, in case you would like to learn more about the WW Teaching Fellowship program.
