Ohio's Fellows







About the Fellowships

  • The Fellowships recruit teachers—both recent college graduates and career changers—with strong backgrounds in the STEM fields (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics).
  • Each WW Ohio Teaching Fellow receives a $30,000 Fellowship to complete a specially designed, cutting-edge master's degree program, as preparation to teach in high-need urban or rural secondary schools.
  • Fellows commit to teach for three years, with ongoing mentoring.
  • Universities agree to redesign their teacher education programs.
  • Ohio launched its Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowships in 2010. Funding comes from Choose Ohio First, Race to the Top, and a consortium of private funders.
  • This year's group is the inaugural class (or cohort) of Fellows in Ohio.
