*Dear Faculty Member,*

Some of your students could be the perfect fit for the Woodrow Wilson
Teaching Fellowship
pioneering program that prepares outstanding teachers for the schools that
need them most.

The Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowship, now offered in Georgia, Indiana and
New Jersey, recruits current seniors, recent grads, and alumni with
backgrounds in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) to teach in
high-need secondary schools. Fellows receive a generous stipend
($30,000-32,000) to complete a master's degree program that includes a full
school year of experience in local high-need classrooms. In turn, they
commit to teach for three years in high-need secondary urban or rural
schools. They also get mentoring and support from both their universities
and their schools throughout their three-year commitment.

You know who your strongest students are. You also know which ones might
have the skills and the passion for STEM to work with young people in
high-need schools—the young people who may someday be your college
students, if they first have good high school teachers, and who may miss a
lifetime of opportunities if they don’t.

If you’re picturing two or three of your top students or recent grads with
those young people who so urgently need them, please pass this email on to
those you think would be strong applicants. And encourage them to apply
early—it’s a very competitive process. The 2015 Woodrow Wilson Teaching
Fellowship program offers three application deadlines: October 16, 2015
(Round 1); November 30, 2015 (Round 2); and January 31, 2016 (Round 3). We
also offer webinars
throughout the year for those interested in learning more about the
program. You can learn more at woodrow.org/STEM

Thanks for giving this opportunity some thought. We hope to hear from your


Jose Ochoa
Director, Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowships
