Wipro Science Education Fellowship at Montclair State University
DISTRICTS SELECTED FOR WIPRO SCIENCE EDUCATION FELLOWSHIP AT MONTCLAIR STATE UNIVERSITY
Five local school districts have been selected to participate in the
Wipro Science Education Fellowship (SEF) program at Montclair State University: Clifton, Orange, Montclair, Kearny, and Paramus School Districts will be participating in the program sponsored by Wipro Ltd (NYSE: WIT) a leading global IT company with significant presence across North America including New Jersey. The Wipro SEF program is a teacher-leadership program that supports experienced K to 12 science teachers to deepen their practice while staying in the classroom. The program uses a model of teacher support and development to increase the capacity of teacher-leadership in their respective districts. This model includes a comprehensive set of activities designed to enhance teachers' abilities to increase achievement in science for underperforming students. Twenty experienced teachers from the five school districts will be selected to join the first cohort. Each teacher will participate for two years and will receive a stipend of $10,000 for their work. The program at Montclair State University is in partnership with the University of Massachusetts, Boston. The two universities will run parallel programs in northern New Jersey and the Boston area, extending the community of participating teachers to these areas.
