The University of North Carolina at Greensboro is now accepting applications for its next cohort of Teacher Education Fellows. We hope that you will share the attached flyer with any of your seniors interested in careers in teaching.
The UNCG Teacher Education Fellows Program awards a $20,000.00 scholarship distributed incrementally over four years of study at UNCG. In addition to scholarships, the UNCG Teacher Education Fellows Program includes a variety of other benefits, including integrated seminars, networking events, community engagement opportunities, and leadership development. Fellows also live in relative proximity to one another as part of the Residential Colleges or Lloyd International Honors College. Additionally, Fellows study abroad during their sophomore year as part of the global focus of the program.
To be eligible for participation in the UNCG Teacher Education Fellows Program, a student must be a North Carolina resident and should have a recommended minimum 3.80 weighted cumulative high school GPA and a minimum SAT score of 1100 (verbal and math–approximately 1170 in the revised format) or ACT composite score of 24. Students must also select one of the following UNCG majors that lead to N.C. teaching licensure:
*Middle Grades Education
*Dual (Elementary and Special) Education
*One of the following majors in the College of Arts and Sciences with Secondary Education concentrations:
– Integrated Science
– Political Science
If your students meet these criteria, we hope they will consider applying for a spot in this scholarship program by completing the UNCG Teacher Education Fellows Application. Priority will be given to those applications (to both the University and the Program) received by January 1, 2017.
