Career Partnership with The Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation












City Year is proud to partner with the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation so our alumni can continue to make a difference in classrooms and in the lives of students. This partnership reflects the shared visions and values of both organizations, and their belief that young people can keep students on track to graduate from high school and pursue post-secondary education. City Year strengthens an applicant’s chances for being selected for the Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowship and the Woodrow Wilson Academy of Teaching and Learning.


About the Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowship


The Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowship recruits the nation's best and brightest recent college graduates and career changers in STEM fields (science, technology, engineering, or math) with a generous stipend ($30,000) to complete an intensive yearlong master's degree program in teaching at one of Woodrow Wilson’s partner universities. Fellows then commit to three years of teaching at a high-need urban or rural secondary school and receive intensive mentoring from teacher leaders and veteran teachers during this formative time. Fellows who continue to teach beyond the commitment are eligible for the Teacher Education Assistance for College and Higher Education Grant (of up to $4,000 a year) and the Teacher Loan Forgiveness Program (of up to $17,500).  


How to apply to the Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowship

  • Check the eligibility requirements of the program before starting an application.
  • Access the WW Teaching Fellowship’s admissions website and apply online.
  • City Year corps members and alumni should highlight their City Year experience on their resume.

About the Woodrow Wilson Academy of Teaching and Learning

The Woodrow Wilson Academy of Teaching and Learning is an innovative new graduate school of education in Cambridge, Massachusetts, created in collaboration with MIT, that prepares outstanding individuals for successful careers as educators. The WW Academy offers a cutting-edge, mastery-based teacher preparation program that combines live classroom practice, one-on-one faculty mentorship, simulations, game-based learning, and online learning. Candidates who complete the time-flexible Academy curriculum—based on demonstrated mastery rather than credit hours—earn a Master’s in Education and satisfy the Commonwealth of Massachusetts’ initial licensure requirements to teach secondary-level biology, chemistry, or mathematics. (Other fields will be added in future years.) Dedicated faculty mentors support all candidates throughout the program and for two years after they graduate. Teacher candidates in the 2018 inaugural class who begin their teaching careers after achieving licensure will receive full tuition reimbursement.

Note to currently serving corps members: Pay close attention to start dates to avoid conflict with your City Year graduation. Please compare the Start Date for the Teaching Fellows program(s) in which you are interested to your City Year graduation date. Corps members must avoid Teaching Fellows programs with a conflict, since being accepted into a program that starts before your City Year graduation means ending your term of service with City Year and losing your Education Award.


Please note that all admissions decisions are made by Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation in consultant with university partners. AmeriCorps members and alumni interested in the program must complete the full application process.
