The Woodrow Wilson Ohio Teaching Fellowships

Woodrow Wilson logoAbout the Program

The Woodrow Wilson Ohio Teaching Fellowship seeks to attract talented, committed individuals with backgrounds in the STEM fields—science, technology, engineering, and mathematics—into teaching in high-need Ohio secondary schools. Eligible applicants include current undergraduates, recent college graduates, mid-career professionals, and retirees who have majored in, or had careers in, STEM fields. Learn more about the teaching fellowships offered by the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation.

After the one-year intensive preparation program, which includes campus-based preparation and clinical-based experiences within urban schools, Fellows commit to teach for three years within high-need schools. Once they become teachers, the Fellows continue to receive support from the University during the first three years.
