STEM Teaching Fellowship

Racial and socioeconomic achievement gaps persist in our schools today. There is a 26% or greater gap in math achievement between white students and students of color. We believe in the power of STEM to offer opportunities to students who need it most. You can change this by becoming a STEM teacher.

The EnCorps team will provide guidance as you begin the process to become a credentialed teacher. Additionally, the broad network of fellows provides first hand experience from people who, like you, transitioned into a teaching career.

Fellowship details:

  • Fellows earn their credential from a university partner over the course of 4-14 months

  • EnCorps will place you in a local partner school for 1 semester where you will spend 2-5 hours per week as a volunteer Guest Teacher

  • Fellows train online/on-demand and at 3 in-person cohort events each year by participating in enhanced skills preparation workshops

  • Fellows receive extensive support and mentoring from the EnCorps staff, their cohort, and EnCorps’ network of schools

  • With the help of EnCorps, you will develop your unique timeline to become a credentialed, paid teacher, in as little as 9 months, or 3 years depending on your personal goals.

Minimum requirements:

  • Have a bachelor's degree 

  • Have at least 1 year of hands-on STEM industry work experience or have an advanced degree in a STEM field*

  • Financial plan to pursue your credential and participate in unpaid Guest Teaching Training for one semester
