Wipro Partners With Michigan State University To Launch Wipro STEM Fellowship Program In US

Wipro Ltd. (NYSE:WIT), a leading global Information Technology and Consulting company, and Michigan State University (MSU) today jointly announced the launch of a fellowship program in the United States. This multi-year program will be funded by a USD 2.8 million grant from Wipro, and will involve over a hundred school teachers, with the aim of nurturing excellence in science and mathematics, starting with the public school systems of Chicago.

The Wipro STEM Fellowship Program will focus on building leadership in these disciplines in urban schools by leveraging on research validated expertise of the College of Education at the MSU in designing transformative and innovative instructional experiences. For the Chicago public schools system, this program and its fellow teachers will be an integrated part of its effort towards STEM capacity development in the districts.

Wipro’s initiative is aligned with the US national goal to significantly improve the quality of education in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). "Wipro is committed to being an involved participant in its communities. This initiative seeks to develop and inspire young people to contribute to excellence in STEM education,” said T.K. Kurien, Chief Executive Officer and Member of the Board, Wipro Ltd.

The program, to be entirely funded by Wipro, will identify teachers committed to teaching in urban schools after a rigorous selection process. Participants will be elementary or secondary school educators.

Successful participants will earn a Graduate Certificate in STEM Teaching and Leadership recognizing their commitment and expertise in STEM fields in urban education. All program participants will also become part of the STEM Urban Learning & Leadership Community. This community seeks to create a cohort culture that builds both individual and collective capacity to give an impetus for STEM learning outcomes among urban students. The program leverages directly on the significant Urban Education initiatives of the College of Education, MSU, and its award winning Master of Arts Program in Education Technology.
