If you have students, friends, or colleagues who want to put their math, science, engineering or technology knowledge to work for the young people who need them most, the Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowship Program offers an unparalleled opportunity.

For top applicants, this prestigious fellowship offers a $30,000 stipend toward completion of a one-year master's degree program at a Woodrow Wilson partner institution in Georgia, Indiana, or New Jersey.
