Mobilize your math or science skills - BECOME A TEACHER
Through the W. K. Kellogg Foundation’s Woodrow Wilson Michigan Teaching Fellowship Program
The application for the 2013 cohort has ended.
Use your talents, skills, and degree in a STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) discipline to join the ranks of W. K. Kellogg Foundation’s Woodrow Wilson Michigan Teaching Fellows interested in teaching mathematics and science in Michigan's high-need secondary schools.
If you are a college senior, graduate, or career changer with a mathematics or science bachelor’s degree (from May 2013 or before), have at least a 3.0 GPA, overall and in your major, and are committed to transforming student learning of math and science, you could join a cohort of Fellows preparing to teach mathematics or science in a Michigan high-need, secondary school. Applications for the June 2013 cohorts are made on-line through the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation.
Grand Valley State University is one of six Michigan universities chosen to participate in this innovative program to prepare science and mathematics secondary teachers.
“It is a fantastic opportunity for Grand Valley to participate in this program,” said GVSU Project Director Loretta Konecki. “Grand Valley has developed a unique master’s level certification program that is clinically based in schools and addresses Michigan’s need for outstanding mathematics and science teachers.”
The Grand Valley State University (GVSU) program prepares fellows to teach secondary (middle and high school) mathematics or science by obtaining a Michigan provisional teaching certificate* with an endorsement in one of these science or math disciplines:
Although it is not required we encourage Fellows to obtain an endorsement in a subject area minor as this makes Fellows more marketable when seaking a teaching position. Your teaching minor could be in any of the following areas:
|Earth/Space Science||Health Education|
Please visit our Teaching Endorsement page for more information about the specific endorsement areas requirements.
Each Fellow selected by the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation and Grand Valley State University will receive a $30,000 Fellowship in exchange for a three-year commitment to teach in a high need secondary school. Fifteen Fellows will be selected for admission to the 2013 GVSU cohort. GVSU tuition paid by Fellows will be the same as for other master’s degree students. Tuition is set at the end of July for the upcoming academic year (fall, winter, spring/summer).

Do you hold a bachelor's degree in other content areas? If so, GVSU’s Graduate Teacher Certification (GTC) program may be for you!
* The provisional certificate is the initial teaching certificate issued in Michigan upon successful completion of an approved teacher preparation program and passage of the Michigan Test for Teacher Certification (MTTC) in the basic skills and area of your subject matter endorsement. Once you receive this certificate, it is valid for up to 6 years and can be renewed.
