Alumna selected as Woodrow Wilson Georgia Teaching Fellow

  • The Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation selected 60 WW Georgia Teaching Fellows for 2016. Among them is Georgia College and State University 2016 B.S. graduate Kendall Brown.
  • The highly competitive program recruits both recent graduates and career changers with strong backgrounds in science, technology, engineering, and math—the STEM fields—and prepares them specifically to teach in high-need secondary schools.
  • Each Fellow receives $30,000 to complete a specially designed, cutting-edge master’s degree program based on a yearlong classroom experience. In return, Fellows commit to teach for three years in the urban and rural Georgia schools that most need strong STEM teachers. Throughout the three-year commitment, Fellows receive ongoing support and mentoring.
