Ricardo Ramos ’16 was recently named a recipient of the Woodrow Wilson Indiana Teaching Fellowship. Ramos, a graduate student at Valparaiso, received a degree in mathematics from Dominican University. 

The Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation selected 43 WW Indiana Teaching Fellows for 2016. The highly competitive program recruits both recent graduates and career changers with strong backgrounds in science, technology, engineering, and math—the STEM fields—and prepares them specifically to teach in high-need secondary schools.

Each Fellow receives $32,000 to complete a specially designed, cutting-edge master’s degree program based on a year-long classroom experience. In return, Fellows commit to teach for three years in the urban and rural Indiana schools that most need strong STEM teachers. Throughout the three-year commitment, Fellows receive ongoing support and mentoring.
