Ball State University seeks your assistance in identifying talented students and alumni in biology, chemistry, physics, or mathematics who might be interested in teaching at the high-school level with a prestigious fellowship opportunity.
In partnership with the Woodrow Wilson Foundation, Ball State is offering 20 fellowships to graduating seniors, graduate students, and alumni interested in changing careers. Through this one-year competitive program individuals will:
• earn a teaching license in mathematics, physics, chemistry or biology
• earn a master’s degree in secondary education
• have the designation “Woodrow Wilson Fellow,” which signifies excellence, rigor, and selectivity
• receive a $30,000 stipend
Woodrow Wilson Indiana Teaching Fellows will study a curriculum specially developed through a partnership between Teachers College and the College of Sciences and Humanities to prepare for the real world of today’s classrooms. Following a summer of study on the Ball State campus, Fellows will spend the academic year interning with clinical faculty at an area high school and taking classes with Ball State faculty on campus. The Ball State support then will continue with three years of mentoring while Fellows complete their commitment to teach in high-needs schools.
Ball State University’s Teachers College and College of Sciences and Humanities have an outstanding reputation and a long history of successful relationships with respect to teacher education initiatives and collaborative field-based instruction. For the fourth consecutive year,U.S. News & World Report ranked our graduate programs in education among the best in the nation.
A virtual information session will be held on Thursday, October 27, at 7:30 p.m. Muncie time. Interested students are encouraged to visitwww.bsu.edu/teachers/wwfellows, and register for the virtual session.
Current Woodrow Wilson Fellows often mention that direct contact by a respected faculty member is one of the strongest motivators in applying to this program. We respectfully request that you and other faculty members nominate current or past students who may qualify and who may have an interest. Our contact information is below. Please let us know if you would like additional information.
Thank you for your assistance.
