The Fellowships recruit teachers-both recent college graduates and career changers-with strong backgrounds in the STEMM fields (science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and medicine).
Each Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellow receives a $30,000 Fellowship to complete a specially designed,-cutting-edge master's degree program, as preparation to teach in high-need urban or rural secondary schools.
Fellows commit to teach in Ohio for three years, with ongoing mentoring.
Universities agree to redesign their teacher education programs.
Ohio launched its Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowships in 2010, with the first Fellows named in 2011. This year's group is the fourth class (or cohort) of Fellows in Ohio.
In 2014, the Foundation named 79 Woodrow Wilson Ohio Teaching Fellows. Fellows will attend John Carroll University, The Ohio State University, Ohio University, the University of Akron, the University of Cincinnati, the University of Dayton, and the University of Toledo.
