Fellowships to USA college students and graduates to complete a Master's degree in STEM education at eligible universities. Participants will receive a stipend to cover living expenses and tuition, and must commit to teaching at underserved schools in Pennsylvania upon completion of their degree.

The Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowship offers recent graduates and career changers in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) a stipend to complete a specially designed, cutting-edge master’s degree program, in exchange for a commitment to three years of teaching at high-need secondary urban or rural schools. 

The program provides Fellows with a $32,000 stipend to help offset the cost of tuition and living expenses during a year of full-time master’s study and to help support Fellows in their preparation for teaching, including in-depth classroom experience, at one of several partner universities and their teacher education programs. Fellows attend classes and complete their clinical year as a cohort with other STEM Teaching Fellows.

Pennsylvania partner universities include:

  • Duquesne University
  • University of Pennsylvania
  • West Chester University

The Teaching Fellowship includes:

  • Admission to a master's degree program at a partner university
  • Preparation for teacher certification in science, mathematics or technology education
  • Extensive preparation for teaching in a high-need urban or rural secondary school for one full year prior to becoming the teacher-of-record in a science or math classroom
  • Generous financial stipend, with tuition arrangements varying by campus. (Once Fellows are certified teachers at the end of the first year, they obtain salaried employment in high-need schools.)
  • Support and mentoring throughout the three-year teaching commitment
  • Support of a cohort of WW Fellows passionate about science and math education
  • Lifelong membership in a national network of Woodrow Wilson Fellows who are intellectual leaders

As part of their commitment to ensuring the success of students in high-need secondary schools, Fellows teach for at least three years in an urban or rural school district. Continuation as a teacher of record is contingent on the Fellow's completing the master's degree and obtaining appropriate teaching licensure.
