KSTF Teaching Fellows are chosen from among individuals who have earned or are in the process of earning a degree in a discipline related to STEM. Fellowships are intended for individuals who are committed to teaching STEM related subjects to high school students. KSTF is seeking individuals who have outstanding and current content knowledge; thus applicants should have a recent content degree (typically within the last 5–10 years). We are also seeking candidates who have the capacity and determination to commit to teaching as their primary career; the fellowship is not intended for those who have previously established a career (typically more than 5-10 years) in another field.
The KSTF Teaching Fellowship is intended to support beginning high school STEM teachers, that is, individuals who have recently earned a secondary teaching credential or will earn their credential no later than September 1, 2014. Individuals who have earned a secondary teaching credential prior to January 1, 2013 are not eligible to apply. Please review the eligibility page on our website for more information.
