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.
Are you picturing two or three of your top students or recent grads with those young people who so urgently need them? Good. Those students could be the perfect fit for the Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowship, a pioneering program that prepares outstanding teachers for the schools that need them most. However, the November 30 application deadline is just ahead.
The most successful Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellows come to us through a recommendation from a trusted source–a professor or colleague like you. Please pass this email to your students or recent grads who you think would be strong applicants and encourage them to apply. For more information, please visit http://woodrow.org/teach. You can also download a poster for the Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowship, now offered in Georgia, Indiana, and New Jersey.
Thanks for supporting our recruitment efforts. We hope to hear from your students.
