October 12, 2010

Dear Faculty Member,
Earlier this year, you should have received information about the Woodrow
Wilson Teaching Fellowship. This Fellowship from the Woodrow Wilson National
Fellowship Foundation seeks to recruit talented college graduates and
mid-career professionals to teach science, technology, engineering, or
mathematics (the STEM fields).

You may already have nominated students for the 2011 cohort. If you have
not, there is still time before the December 1, 2010 deadline to
nominate the students and alumni whom you feel have the qualifications and
potential to excel in this program.

Woodrow Wilson's Teaching Fellowship offers rigorous teaching preparation,
extensive clinical experience, and ongoing mentoring, as well as a $30,000
stipend.  These new Woodrow Wilson Fellows will be STEM scholars and
experts-outstanding college juniors and seniors majoring in these fields,
recent college graduates, and second-career professionals-interested in
teaching in high-need urban and rural middle and secondary schools.

Accepted Fellows will begin their studies in summer 2011 in a master's
degree program at one of fourteen participating universities in Indiana,
Michigan and Ohio.  In exchange, Fellows will commit to teach math or
science in a high-need urban or rural middle or secondary school for three
years upon completing the master's degree and appropriate state teaching

Fellows from various Woodrow Wilson programs, including 13 Nobel Laureates,
35 MacArthur "genius grant" winners, and two Fields Medalists in
mathematics,  have gone on to achieve international recognition as
intellectual leaders and top scholars. The WW Teaching Fellows will become
lifelong members of this network of talented academics and leaders.

For additional information regarding the Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowship,
please visit:
www.woodrow.org/teach.  While all applications are due no later than January
12, 2011, we ask that you kindly submit any
nominations on or before Wednesday, December 1, 2010.  
Nominations should include:

1. the student's name (first and last), and
2. the student's e-mail address


You may also provide additional information, if you so choose, by either
attaching a Word document or writing in the text box provided on
the nomination form.

Should you have any difficulty in completing the nomination form,
nominations may also be directed to Ysabel Gonzalez at:
WWTeachingFellowship at woodrow.org.  Any questions may be forwarded to this
same address, or you may contact Ysabel via telephone at 609.452.7007 x141.

I hope you share the Foundation's sense that this Fellowship, which extends
Woodrow Wilson's longstanding commitment to the preparation of teachers and
scholars, is a critically important initiative for the nation and for the
young people who most need excellent teachers in these fields. Thank you, in
advance, for your assistance and support.
