If you are passionate about teaching high school math and science and dedicated to challenging and supporting all students, the KSTF Teaching Fellowship could help you succeed in ways you’ve never imagined.

KSTF supports passionate, dedicated teachers to thrive in the profession, leadfrom the classroom and become change agents in education. The KSTF five-year fellowship, one of the most generous and comprehensive professional development programs for STEM teachers, provides its fellows access to a close, collaborative community of like-minded colleagues.

The KSTF Teaching Fellowships are awarded annually to individuals who are committed to teaching science and/or mathematics in a U.S. high school. In selecting the Fellows, KSTF assesses depth and breadth of the applicant's content knowledge, their potential to develop exemplary teaching practices and their ability to cultivate their leadership skills to become teacher leaders.

ELIGIBILITY:
KSTF Science and Mathematics Teaching Fellows are chosen from among individuals who have earned or are in the process of
earning a degree in a discipline related to the science or math subject(s) they intend to teach. Fellowships are intended for
individuals committed to teaching high school mathematics, physical sciences or biological sciences.

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). They 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.

HOW TO APPLY:
** Complete Online Registration Form
** Submit three essays on your potential to meet the three areas of selection criteria
** Provide 3 letters of recommendation
** Provide your official transcripts
