Available this year in Georgia, Indiana, and New Jersey, these Fellowships offer intensive master’s-level teacher preparation, including a year of classroom experience, for exceptionally qualified candidates with science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) backgrounds. Eligible candidates may be graduating seniors, or they may be recent grads/alumni; they should have a commitment to teaching in the urban and rural schools that most often lack strong STEM teachers; and they must have completed STEM degrees.

Fellows receive a $30,000 stipend to complete the master’s program. In turn, they commit to teach for three years in high-need secondary urban or rural schools in the state where they did their preparation. Throughout those three years, they continue to receive mentoring and support from both their universities and their schools. US citizenship or permanent residency required.
