Fall 2014 semester includes two (2) $10,000 scholarships and four (4) $5,000 scholarships

Students with a declared major of biology, chemistry, biochemistry, or a related life-science field. To qualify for the scholarship, students must have a GPA of 3.0 (on a 4.0 scale) and be enrolled in an accredited college for university for the Fall 2014 semester. In addition to these qualifications, students must also be legal United States residents, meaning that students possessing appropriate Visa status in order to study in the United States are also eligible.

Students may apply for the scholarship through the Thermo Scientific Pierce Scholarship Website.

The Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowshipip, now offered in Ohio, Indiana, Michigan, and New Jersey, seeks to attract talented, committed individuals with science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) backgrounds into teaching in high–need secondary schools. This pioneering program has been recognized by the White House and touted as a model by the U.S. Department of Education.

The Fellowship offers current seniors, recent graduates, and career changers in the STEM fields a $30,000 stipend to complete an intensive master's degree program that focuses on a year-long experience in a real-world classroom. In exchange, Fellows commit to teach for three years in high–need secondary urban or rural schools, with mentoring and support from both their universities and their schools throughout their three-year commitment.
The Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellows are also part of the larger international network of Woodrow Wilson Fellows, a select group of 21,000 intellectual leaders who have received the Foundation's support over the past seven decades. Since 1945, the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation has worked to identify and develop leaders and institutions to meet the nation's critical challenges.
Today, there is no more urgent national need in education than to bring exceptionally able math and science teachers into high-need schools.
