Knowles Science Teaching Foundation Teaching Fellowship

KSTF awards Teaching Fellowships to exceptional young men and women committed to teaching science and mathematics in United States high schools. The Teaching Fellowship is designed explicitly to meet the needs of teachers from the time they begin working on a teaching credential through the early years of their career.

KSTF Teaching Fellows are eligible to receive stipends, grants, professional development and more to support their progress as teacher leaders. KSTF Teaching Fellowships are awarded based on three criteria: the potential to develop the content knowledge needed for teaching, the potential to develop exemplary teaching practices, and the potential to develop the qualities of a teacher leader. Applicants must demonstate the ability to develop in each of these areas in order to be selected. Once selected, fellows focus on growth in these areas over the three phases of the program.
