W.K. Kellogg Foundation Grant to Improve Preparation of Michigan’s Math and Science Teachers

DETROIT — Addressing the shortage of math and science teachers who will equip Michigan’s vulnerable students with the skills they need to compete in the workforce, 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 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 Michigan will receive high quality instruction in the critical subject areas of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM).

A news conference with Michigan Governor Jennifer M. Granholm, Sterling Speirn, president and CEO of the Kellogg Foundation and Arthur Levine, president of the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation was held to describe the program.
