The W.K. Kellogg Foundation’s Woodrow Wilson Michigan Teaching Fellowship is a way to support secondary MAC students who want to teach biology, chemistry, mathematics, and physics in a high needs school in an urban or rural setting.

We encourage you to first apply to the secondary MAC program, and then apply for the Fellowship through the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation’s website.

Fellows participate in the secondary Master of Arts with Certification (Secondary MAC) program following the regular program of study. The Secondary MAC program is a rigorous graduate-level teacher education program that is complemented by a yearlong clinical experience. As a Secondary MAC Teaching Intern, the Fellows work with students in grades six through 12, in either Ypsilanti or Detroit public school classrooms. In one full year, spring to summer, the Woodrow Wilson Fellows complete coursework for a master’s degree in education. At the end of the first year, Fellows who meet the state requirements are recommended for the Michigan provisional teaching certificate.

After graduation, Fellows are supported with mentoring and professional development throughout the first three year of their teaching in Michigan. The Woodrow Wilson Foundation does requires that graduates of the program seek employment in a high needs urban or rural school in the state of Michigan for these first three years of teaching.
