The WW Teaching Fellows are ensuring that young people have the science and math literacy to participate fully as citizens in contemporary society. Fellows bring their STEM expertise to high-need classrooms across the country, receiving financial support and mentorship as they complete a specially designed master’s degree at one of the program’s partner universities. Through the WW Teaching Fellowship, C&S also brings together higher education institutions, state and local policy makers, and school districts to reshape how teachers are prepared and to create a better pipeline of STEM educators to serve the students in their states.
The WW 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. The Fellowship has also prepared over a thousand teachers. Eligible applicants include U.S. citizens or permanent residents who are college seniors, recent college graduates, midcareer professionals, and retirees who have a degree or an extensive academic background in STEM.
