$32,000 Stipend for Graduates in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math in 2021

Fellowships to USA college students and graduates to complete a Master’s degree in STEM education at eligible universities in Pennsylvania. Participants will receive a stipend to cover living expenses and tuition, and must commit to teaching at underserved schools in Pennsylvania upon completion of their degree.

Pennsylvania partner universities include:

  • Duquesne University
  • University of Pennsylvania
  • West Chester University

The Teaching Fellowship includes:

  • Admission to a master’s degree program at a partner university
  • Preparation for 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 $32,000 stipend during their first year while completing the master’s degree
  • Once Fellows are certified teachers (have completed their master’s degree), they obtain salaried employment in high-need schools
  • After graduation, Fellows commit to teaching in a high-need urban or rural secondary school for three years:
    • PA Fellows who attend the University of Pennsylvania and West Chester University must complete their Fellowship commitment in Foundation-approved public schools in the School District of Philadelphia (SDP)
    • PA Fellows who attend Duquesne University must complete their Fellowship commitment in Foundation-approved schools in Pittsburgh Public Schools (PPS) or the surrounding area
  • 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 WW Fellows who are intellectual leaders

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