About the UC-CPS Fellowship
For more than a century, the College of Education, Criminal Justice, and Human Services (CECH) has prepared teachers to make a difference in their communities and around the world. CECH is now recognized as a state leader in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) education through Ohio’s new Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowship Program.
Application deadline for the 2013-2014 class of 15 fellows is January 11, 2013.

The next class of fellows will begin June 2013 and complete a 15-month full-time program. Through a series of specifically designed STEM content courses and education seminars taught by UC faculty fellows will earn a teaching license and all but 3 courses for a master’s degree by the end of the intensive 15-month program. As part of the 15 month experience Fellows will be given a clinical placement in a Cincinnati public secondary school (grades 7 – 12) for the 2013 school year. The Fellows are placed in learning communities of 3 or 4 and will work collaboratively with school-based mentors.
Facets of UC’s Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowship program:
- Immediately gain experience with students through summer programs.
- Build on your knowledge base through coursework to extend your knowledge in your field and other STEM areas.
- Courses co-taught by Arts & Sciences, Engineering, and Education and school-based faculty connect content to teaching strategies in the classroom.
- Strong community-based approach allows you to become part of the classroom, the school, and the community where teachers and students work, live and play.
Fellows answer a personal calling to be the very best at preparing students for future high-demand fields. Through the support of the Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowship, and the expertise of faculty from across the University of Cincinnati, we look ahead to transforming fellows into recognized leaders in teaching.
