As you may have noticed, NorthstarNerd.Org never has a single advertisement. My site has grown popular enough that rarely a week goes by without someone contacting me privately with an offer to cross-link or host advertising with a technical or engineering focus. I turn down all these offers, as I want this blog to remain pure to its ideals.
However, yesterday I received an email about a STEM Fellowship (Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics). Given my own dedication to coaching First Lego League over the years (see my kid's corner engineering learning section of this blog), and a belief we need more people who help our children learn to love the sciences, I will make an exception to my policy. Please note I received no payment to host this information.
If it works with your career ... please consider applying!
Woodrow Wilson Fellowship Information
The Fellowship offers a $30,000 stipend; rigorous disciplinary and pedagogical preparation at one of four participating Indiana universities; extensive clinical experience in a high-need urban or rural secondary school; support and mentoring throughout the three year teaching experience; and lifelong membership in a national network of Woodrow Wilson Fellows who are intellectual leaders.
Fellows from Woodrow Wilson programs have gone on to achieve international recognition as intellectual leaders and top scholars, including 13 Nobel Laureates, 35 MacArthur “genius grant” fellows, and two Fields Medalists in mathematics.
Eligible applicants include current undergraduates, recent college graduates, midcareer professionals, and retirees who have majored in, or had careers in, STEM fields. For more information, please contact Sylvia Kovac at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit http://www.woodrow.org/ApplyIndiana
