It is difficult to get good teachers of science, technology, engineering or math in high-risk schools in poor urban and rural areas. This can have a green education side from batteries to wind and solar, to clean nuclear power. Recent college graduates and later in life "career changers" can be accepted into the program and get a $30,000 stipend to complete their intensive master’s degree program at one of 14 universities. This is not a new program. WW Teaching Fellowships go back to the post-World War II era. You can learn a lot more about the program by looking at the video below. It's exciting because both young people who are encouraged to become teachers after they get their STEM degree (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) and also older people can also join the program and become teachers. Even retired people can decide that they are in good health and want to contribute to society in a way that they have never before in their lives. Making a difference is the name of the game.
To be accepted into the program you need to have completed an undergraduate degree in the fields mentioned by June 2011 with a 3.0 GPA or more, and show that you are committed to the WW Program. Then you will complete the master's in teacher education, commit to 3 years of teaching in a high needs school, and get lots of support in your struggle.
