The Woodrow Wilson-Rockefeller Brothers Fund Fellowships

Tags: financial aid, funding, student affairs

The Woodrow Wilson‐Rockefeller Brothers Fund Fellowships for Aspiring Teachers of Color were created to help recruit and support individuals of color as K‐12 public school teachers in the United States. Through this fellowship, we hope to prepare greater numbers of highly qualified teachers of color in public school classrooms around the country.

This fellowship includes:

  • a $30,000 stipend to apply toward the cost of a master’s degree
  • preparation for teaching in a high‐need public school
  • support and mentoring throughout the three‐year teaching commitment
  • guidance toward teaching certification
  • lifelong membership in a national network of Woodrow Wilson Fellows who are intellectual leaders

Only current seniors are eligible to apply for the WW‐RBF. Applications are accepted through October 26, 2009.

Interested applicants should contact: Dr. Henry O. Meares, Assistant Dean, School of Education

Telephone: 734-323-4237
