Fellowships and Scholarships News and Announcements

Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowship

Posted by Elizabeth on January 19, 2012 in Graduate School Fellowship/Scholarship

The Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowship offers a $30K stipend for Fellows to prepare at selected partner universities. The WW Teaching Fellowship uses a model very much like a residency for Fellows’ clinical practice in high-need urban and rural schools, and includes ongoing mentoring throughout the three years of the teaching commitment.

Currently offered in Indiana, Michigan, and Ohio, the Fellowship may expand to other states in the near future.


The Buick Achievers Scholarship Program

Posted by Elizabeth on January 9, 2012 in National Scholarship

You are making a difference. In your classroom and in your community. If you have the passion to succeed — especially in fields of study important to the automotive and related industries — the Buick Achievers Scholarship Program is looking for you. This year, we will award 1,100 scholarships, including 100 renewable scholarships of up to $25,000 per year.

It starts with good grades. But goes beyond.

A dedicated student. A leader in school. A volunteer worker. A college-bound and community-minded individual.

The Buick Achievers Scholarship Program wants to reward students who have succeeded both inside and outside of the classroom — and who may not be able to attend college without financial assistance. It’s a reward for what you’ve made of yourself and the difference you are making for others.

Applications due February 29, 2012

The Marshall Scholarships finance young Americans of high ability to study for a degree in the United Kingdom. The scholarship allows the Scholars, who are the potential leaders, opinion-formers and decision-makers in their own country, to gain an understanding and appreciation of British values and the British way of life.

The Marshall Scholarship is highly selective and candidates are judged on academic merit, leadership potential and ambassadorial potential.
