In the past few years the need for teachers specialized in the STEM fields has increased at a worrying pace in the United States. It is estimated that by 2015, about 280,000 teachers in these fields will be needed in schools throughout America. The Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation has started its own solution to the lack of teachers.
The purpose of the Teaching Fellowship is not only for candidates to become living examples of self-improvement, but it is also to provide a special training and preparation to help them become:
Professional teachers specialized in the STEM fields whose services will have a bigger impact because they would teach at high-need schools
a positive influence for the young generation in their communities as well as proud representatives of their families in the change of a nation.
Recently graduated college students and career changers are perfect candidates to receive the Teaching Fellowship. Besides preparing the “Fellows” through a master’s program, the Foundation also looks after their job opportunities. Out of all past Fellows, 96% got a job after the completion of their master’s degree.
