Becoming a fellow

Science Corps welcomes applications from individuals who have recently completed or will soon receive a PhD in a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering or Mathematics) discipline, but who have not yet begun a faculty or similar level position.

If you become a Fellow, we will ask you to commit six months to the program. This will allow time for acclimation and orientation, a complete school semester, and a concluding period.

There is no nationality or age restriction.

Science Corps Fellows have a combination of the following core roles on site:

  1. Educational Resources: all Fellows will use their expertise to create and update teaching materials in their field. This can include teaching documents as well as other educational technologies such as websites, games (digital or traditional) and other learning tools.
  2. ​Teaching: depending on the site, Fellows may be fully in charge of teaching classes, or in training teachers to use the materials developed.

Basic Science & Need-based Capacity Building: the Fellows may help build and develop community-based research projects with students, faculty members, and Science Corps personnel.  Fellows may respond to local needs and interests by offering short workshops in a specific technique or area.
