ETSU Faculty Representative:

Office: Warf-Pickel 319
Phone: 439-7503
Email: lewisar@etsu.edu

Award: $30,000 stipend to be used towards master's-level teacher preparation at one of four affiliated schools (Stanford University, University of Pennsylvania, University of Virginia, or University of Washington).  Upon completion of the three-year service commitment, recipients will also become life-long Woodrow Wilson Fellows, a network of over 21,000 distinguished leaders in the arts, business, education, industry, medicine, politics, and the sciences. 

Eligibility: Applicants must be US citizens or permanent residents, have completed a bachelor's degree by the time the fellowship is to begin, and interested in teaching math, science, or Spanish at the middle- or high-school level.

When to Apply: Applications should be sent directly to the specific school of interest. Deadlines vary by school, but completed applications (for general admission and fellowship) are usually due in early January. 

Recently created by the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation in order to improve the national teacher workforce, the Annenberg fellowship is envisioned as a premiere opportunity for those wishing to enter the profession of teaching. Recipients will undertake a year-long Masters program at one of four partner-schools - Stanford University, University of Pennsylvania, University of Virginia, or University of Washington- after which they will be given a three-year employment contract at a low-performing, high need (rural or urban) secondary school and extensive on-site mentoring.  In addition, if a recipient chooses to teach two additional years at a high-need school, s/he will likely qualify for Federal student loan debt forgiveness of up to $17,500.
