The Woodrow Wilson Indiana Teaching Fellowship seeks to attract talented, committed individuals with backgrounds in the STEM fields—science, technology, engineering, and mathematics—into teaching in high-need Indiana secondary schools.

Funded through a $10 million grant from Lilly Endowment, Inc., the Teaching Fellowship offers rigorous pedagogical preparation, extensive clinical immersion in secondary classrooms, and ongoing mentoring.

Fellowship Details

The Teaching Fellowship includes:

  • admission to a master's degree program at a well-established partner university
  • teacher certification in science, mathematics or technology education
  • extensive preparation for teaching in a high-need urban or rural secondary school for one full year prior to becoming the teacher-of-record in a science or math classroom
  • a $30,000-$32,000 stipend (Once Fellows are certified teachers at the end of the first year, they obtain salaried employment in high-need schools.)
  • support and mentoring throughout the three-year teaching commitment
  • support of a cohort of WW Fellows passionate about science and math education
  • lifelong membership in a national network of Woodrow Wilson Fellows who are intellectual leaders


The Fellowship is open to college seniors, graduates, and career changers who:

  • •  have majored in and/or have a strong professional background in a STEM field (science, technology, engineering, or math);
  • •  demonstrate a commitment to the program and its goals;
  • •  have U.S. citizenship or permanent residency;
  • •  have attained, or expect to attain by June 30, 2016, a bachelor's degree from an accredited U.S. college or university or its international equivalent (Note: Undergraduate degrees earned outside the U.S. are accepted if an approved credential evaluator declares the degree equivalent to an earned U.S. bachelor’s degree.);
  • •  a cumulative undergraduate grade point average (GPA) of 3.0 or better on a 4.0 scale is preferred (Note: Candidates who can demonstrate excellence through other avenues will also be considered. All applications are considered in their entirety and selection is based on merit.)
  • •  The Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowships program also requires candidates to take and submit a score report for the appropriate state-required teaching licensure examination.  Please see “Testing Requirements” section for more details.
