WKKF-WW Michigan Teaching Fellowship
About the Fellowship
To increase the quantity and strengthen the quality of Michigan math and science teachers, the WKKF-WW Michigan Teaching Fellowship which was first available for students entering graduate programs in June 2011, 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.
The schools, along with university partners, will provide mentoring and support during the first three years of teaching in a Michigan high needs school. The Fellowship is administered by the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation with the strong support of Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm and funding from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation.
