Have you recently graduated, or are soon to graduate with a degree in a science or mathematics? Despite the consolidation of school districts and the laying off of teachers that is going on in some areas of the nation, a shortage of high school teachers that specialize in science or mathematics remains. It is not just the current needs, but the projected needs of the next several years.
The Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowship is seeking a few folks who are interested in a career change, or have yet to set foot into the business world. If you are accepted, you will receive a stipend of $30,000 to complete a Master’s Degree in Education. While life cannot guarantee you will remain a teacher forever, a three year commitment of teaching at the high school level is mandatory. The next application deadline is a few short days away – on September 1st.
To fill out your application, please visit www.wwteachingfellowship.org. Basic requirements, aside from a finished, or soon to be completed (by June 2011), degree are: a 3.0 GPA or higher, be a United States citizen or permanent legal resident and have the willingness to teach in a high-need school for three years. There are 14 participating universities and colleges. You need not be a resident of the state where the chosen school is located.
