The Knowles Science Teaching Fellowship Program is dedicated to supporting beginning teachers of high school math and science from the onset of the credentialing process through the early years of their careers.

KSTF Science and Mathematics Teaching Fellows are chosen from among individuals who have earned or are in the process of earning a degree in science, mathematics, or engineering from a recognized institution of higher education. Fellowships are offered for individuals committed to teaching high school mathematics, physical sciences, or biological sciences.

Applicants should have received their most recent content (i.e., science, mathematics, or engineering) degree within five years of the start of the fellowship (Saturday, June 1, 2011). An individual who is in the final year of an undergraduate, master’s, combined BS with MAT, or MEd program, or near the completion of a doctoral program in a content area may also be eligible. Applicants who have earned a content degree within the last five years and are currently enrolled in a secondary teaching credential program at the time of application, or have completed their secondary credential no earlier than the fall term before the application deadline, are also eligible to apply.

Applicants must be enrolled or plan to enroll in a recognized teacher education program that leads to a secondary science or mathematics teaching license. At the time of application, applicants do not need to be admitted into a teacher education program. However, successful applicants must be admitted into such a program before the fellowships are awarded in June.

The application deadline is Wednesday, Jan. 12, 2011. For more information, visit the KSTF Website to download an application. Students interested in applying should contact Dr. Geoff Hempill at or 718.982.2301 for assistance with their applications.
