Knowles Science Teaching Foundation


These five-year fellowships help early-career science and math teachers become master teachers and leaders. Fellows receive stipends, funding for professional development, grants for teaching materials, and leadership and mentoring opportunities for the duration of the program. Educators with the potential to develop exemplary teaching methods and leadership skills, as well as the content knowledge needed for teaching, are excellent candidates. Applicants should have earned a degree related to the math or science discipline they intent to teach and have obtained a valid state teaching credential, certificate, or license by September 2017. They must also be entering their first or second year of teaching during the 2017-2018 school year.
