A fellowship program is looking for people with science, technology, engineering or mathematics backgrounds who are interested
in becoming Indiana teachers.

Those accepted into the Woodrow Wilson Indiana Teaching Fellowship program get a
$30,000 stipend to help pay for the program, in which they will earn a master’s degree and teaching license.

initiative aims to increase the number and quality of teachers in subjects such as math and science. Program graduates must
agree to teach in high-need rural or urban secondary schools in Indiana for three years after graduating.

The University
of Indianapolis has scheduled a Sept. 9 meeting to explain the program to those interested. Applications are now being taken
for those who want to start the program in July 2010.
