To increase the quantity and strengthen the quality of Michigan math, science, and technology teachers, the WKKF-WW Michigan Teaching Fellowship is creating the equivalent of a National Merit Scholarship for teachers. The Fellowship, which will first be available for students entering graduate programs in the summer of 2012, offers recent graduates and career changers in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) a stipend of $30,000 to complete a specially designed, cutting-edge master's degree program, in exchange for a commitment to teach for three years in high-need secondary urban or rural schools. The program provides Fellows with this stipend to support their preparation for teaching, including in-depth clinical experience in one of six selected Michigan teacher education programs. Once their preparation is complete and Fellows obtain teaching certification, they will be part of a cohort teaching in high-need schools in the same districts at the same time. The schools, along with university partners, will provide mentoring and support throughout the three-year Fellowship period. The Fellowship is administered by the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation and is funded with a $16.7 million grant from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation. Leadership from the Governor's office is also a key part of the program. Potential applicants must have achieved a cumulative undergraduate GPA of 3.0 or higher on a 4.0 scale.
