The Teaching Fellowship is an amazing opportunity for deserving students.
It includes admission to a master’s degree program at a well-established partner university, preparation for teacher certification in science, mathematics or technology and extensive preparation for teaching in a secondary school for one full year.
The Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowship program is designed to support the nation’s best and brightest recent graduates interested in achieving higher education goals.
The Teaching Fellowship application is available online and there is no application fee to apply to the Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowship program.
The Fellowship committee determined specific enrollment requirements and only if you meet them, you are encouraged to apply.
The application is open to college seniors and graduates who have majored in and/or have 30 or more college-level credits in a STEM field.
Plus, they need to demonstrate a commitment to the program and its goals and possess U.S. citizenship or permanent residency.
Furthermore, they need to have attained, or expect to attain a bachelor’s degree from an accredited U.S. college or university or its international equivalent and gain a cumulative undergraduate grade point average (GPA) of 3.0 or better on a 4.0 scale.
Those who do not meet these minimum requirements should not waste their time applying as their applications will be rejected.
