The Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowship at Rowan University

The Woodrow Wilson New Jersey Teaching Fellowship seeks to attract talented, committed individuals with backgrounds in the STEM fields into teaching in high-need NJ high schools.

What kind of preparation for teaching do Fellows receive?

The full-time, cohort-based Master in the STEM Education at Rowan offers rigorous disciplinary and pedagogical preparation, extensive clinical experience, and ongoing mentoring. Fellows' preparation takes place on the main campus in Glassboro, NJ and in southern NJ districts (Bridgeton, Millville, and/or Vineland). Coursework begins in May 2014, and should conclude during the Summer semester of 2015.

What is the full Fellowship package?

  • A 57% discount on tuition rates for all Fellows and no fees
  • admission to Rowan University and the Master in the STEM Education
  • preparation on campus and in southern NJ high schools.
  • support and mentoring throughout the three-year teaching commitment.
  • lifelong membership in a national Woodrow Wilson network of Fellows and intellectual leaders.

What commitment do Fellows make?

As part of their commitment to ensuring the success of students in high-need NJ secondary schools, Fellows teach for at least three years in a high needs urban or rural school district. Continuation as a teacher of record is contingent on the Fellow's completing the Masters program and obtaining appropriate NJ teaching certification.

Who can apply for the Fellowship?

Eligible applicants include current undergraduates, recent college graduates, midcareer professionals, and retirees who have majored in, or had careers in, STEM fields.

What qualifications are required of applicants?

A qualified applicant should:

  • 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, 2014, a bachelor’s degree from an accredited U.S. college or university;
  • have majored in and/or have a strong professional background in a STEM field; and
  • have achieved a cumulative undergraduate grade point average (GPA) of 3.0 or better on a 4.0 scale (negotiable for applicants from institutions that do not employ a 4.0 GPA scale).

What concentrations are offered within the Master's program at Rowan?

At Rowan, Fellows will earn our Master's in STEM Education and, simultaneously, a NJ secondary teaching certificate in Mathematics or Physics
