Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowship Program

The Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowship seeks to attract talented, committed individuals with backgrounds in the STEM fields—science, technology, engineering, and mathematics—into teaching in high-need secondary schools in Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, and New Jersey.


Eligible applicants include current undergraduates, recent college graduates, midcareer professionals, and retirees who have majored in, or had careers in, STEM fields.


This prestigious fellowship offers a $30,000 stipend toward completion of a Master’s degree program at a Woodrow Wilson partner institution in Indiana, New Jersey, or Ohio. Fellows undergo a year-long clinical experience in a high-need school.  Once Fellows are certified teachers at the end of the first year, they obtain salaried employment by committing to teach for three years in urban or rural secondary schools.
