Teach for America Computer Science Fellows/2014 Corps
Teach For America recently launched a Computer Science Fellows initiative in NYC, aimed at addressing the persistent opportunity gaps in access to CS along socioeconomic and racial lines here in NYC. We’re partnering with the NSF and the NYC Department of Education to support a group of computer science teachers for this coming school year, and are looking to recruit candidates with backgrounds in CS (through either coursework or personal experience). (Our CEO, Matt Kramer, recently wrote this piece about our emerging efforts in CS.) Beyond the CS Fellows initiative, we’re seeking teachers for STEM and all K-12 academic subjects to work in low-income communities in 48 regions across the country. Our final application deadline for this year is on next Thursday, February 20th, 2014; students can apply online at www.teachforamerica.org. (Seniors and graduating grad students are eligible to apply; juniors can apply at this deadline for our 2015 corps.)

Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowships
The Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowship seeks to attract talented, committed individuals with backgrounds in the STEM fields—science, technology, engineering, and mathematics—into teaching in high-need secondary schools in Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, and New Jersey. Eligible applicants include current undergraduates, recent college graduates, midcareer professionals, and retirees who have majored in, or had careers in, STEM fields.
- 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 $30,000 stipend, with tuition arrangements varying by campus in Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, and New Jersey. (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
