Woodrow Wilson-Rockefeller Brothers Fund Fellowship For Aspiring Teachers of Color

Purpose

The Woodrow Wilson- Rockefeller Brothers Fund Fellowship aims to increase the number of teachers from underrepresented communities in American public education, and to develop a leadership corps of teachers which will serve over the long-term as an agent for positive change in the schools. Fellows receive up to $30,000 for master's degree and teacher certification programs.  They receive support and mentoring through their graduate programs and during their three-year teaching commitment in underserved urban or rural schools.
