Knowles Science Teaching Foundation (KSTF)

Fellowships for USA early-career high school math and science teachers for career development and professional preparedness. Fellowships are intended to provide new math and science teachers with resources and support to improve education in the country's schools. Ideal fellowship candidates have a strong background in science and/or mathematics, and are committed to teaching these subjects to high school students in the United States. Fellows receive financial support, mentoring, coaching, and community membership.
Knowles seeks candidates who have at least the equivalent of a bachelor’s degree in a discipline related to the subject(s) they intend to teach, who demonstrate a flexibility within and connectedness across their own understanding of the discipline, who are passionate about the discipline and have a desire and curiosity to continue to push their own understanding of even basic concepts within the discipline.
The KSTF Teaching Fellowship is a five-year program divided into three phases, with each phase building on the next. Two key leadership development threads run through all five years of the program: practitioner inquiry and community-building. Aside from receiving financial support, Teaching Fellows are part of a network of like-minded individuals who share a dedication to science and mathematics education, and are grappling with the same issues of teacher preparation and professional growth.
Throughout the year, Fellows participate in the Knowles community via online workspaces. At Fall, Spring and Summer Fellows’ Meetings, Fellows are exposed to a variety of resources, curriculum materials, research, and experts in the field. Teaching Fellows may choose to take coursework at a college or university, attend a workshop for teachers, engage in a research project, or participate in an internship.
Fellows may choose to use approximately half of their allocated funds for annual stipends. These stipends are intended to help Fellows reduce debts they may have incurred and the financial burden teachers often bear—both of which are factors that contribute to sustainability in the profession. Stipends can also be used to support Fellows financially during summer months, allowing them to concentrate on reflecting on the past year, preparing for the coming year and professional development, instead of taking on a part-time job.
