Two Fellowship Opportunities for Graduating Seniors: HS Science Teaching and Research

Seniors, There are two fellowship opportunities you might be interested in applying for.  The Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowship, and the Dannon Probiotics Fellowship.

The Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowships, a 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 $30,000 stipend 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.  This is a highly competitive program, but Penn State Students are very competitive! The 2015 Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowship program offers three application deadlines: October 13, 2014 (Round 1); November 14, 2014 (Round 2); and January 31, 2015 (Round 3). You can learn more at woodrow.org/STEM.
