The third class of the W.K. Kellogg Foundation’s Woodrow Wilson Michigan Teaching Fellows, announced today, will bring both cutting-edge preparation and real-world expertise in math and science to Michigan’s high-need urban and rural schools. (See attached list of bios and factsheet on the 2013 class of Fellows.)
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
The 2013 class is the third group of Fellows named in Michigan for this program, launched by the Kellogg Foundation in 2009 with $18 million in support and administered by the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation in Princeton.
