Woodrow Wilson Michigan Teaching Fellows announced

July 15, 2013


The third class of the W.K. Kellogg Foundation's Woodrow Wilson (WKKF-WW) Michigan Teaching Fellows, announced yesterday, will bring both cutting-edge preparation and real-world expertise in math and science to Michigan's high-need urban and rural schools. This year's 51 WKKF-WW Michigan Teaching Fellows -- among them an engineer who helped design a semi-autonomous car, an ornithologist who teaches at a local nature center, a professional pilot, a college economics instructor and more -- will each receive $30,000 to complete a specially designed, cutting-edge master's degree program based on a year-long classroom experience. In return, Fellows commit to teach for three years in Michigan's high-need urban and rural secondary schools.
