Woodrow Wilson
Georgia Teaching Fellowship

Preparing the next generation of Georgia STEM Teachers

Program Overview

The Georgia Partnership for Excellence in Education is proud to provide in-state coordination for this exciting national initiative, which focuses on preparing top-quality educators for many of Georgia’s most under-served public schools. Fellows receive $30,000 to complete a specially designed, cutting-edge master’s degree program based on a yearlong classroom experience. In return, Fellows commit to teach for three years in the urban and rural Georgia schools that most need strong STEM teachers.
