Grant To Boost Michigan Science, Math Teachers

WWJ Newsradio

Addressing the shortage of math and science teachers who will equip Michigan’s vulnerable students with the skills they need to compete in the work force, the W.K. Kellogg Foundation has awarded the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation with a $16.7 million grant to establish a new statewide teaching fellowship program.

The new W.K. Kellogg Foundation’s Woodrow Wilson Michigan Teaching Fellowship will provide 240 future teachers with an exemplary intensive master’s program in education and place those Fellows in hard-to-staff middle and high schools. Over the five-year timeline, almost 20,000 public school students in Mich. will receive high quality instruction in the critical subject areas of science, technology, engineering and math.
