North Carolina A&T Teaching Fellows
At North Carolina A&T School of Education we take pride in educating, training, mentoring, and developing exceptional teachers who are catalysts for learning and leading. As a NC A&T Teaching Fellow, those best practices are enhanced by opportunities that extend beyond the classroom such as seminars, cultural events, travel, leadership responsibilities, and service learning, to name a few. We are committed to supporting your goals as you explore, discover, and earn your degree and license to teach. As a participant in this program, you will learn and implement best practices; gain appreciation and facilitate the development of learning communities; and value the richness and strength of a global society.
Whether you want to be a bright eyed elementary teacher, a teacher who patiently navigates exceptional children through a story, or a science teacher who has turned his/her classroom into a CSI lab, North Carolina A&T is the Right Choice!

As a Teaching Fellow at North Carolina A&T, you can expect to be challenged and motivated to become a dynamic educator as well as an asset to your community.

Personal and Academic Support
Freshmen and upperclassmen are guaranteed single rooms in program housing. Upper class Teaching Fellows and/or honor students room together with freshmen fellows in quads. The students are housed in the same building, and in most cases the same floors. This arrangement allows upperclassmen and freshmen to develop authentic relationships as role models, mentors, tutors and lifelong friends. Professional mentors have included the Dean of the School of Education, faculty, business persons, university and school system administrators.
Six weeks into each semester, the program sends Academic Monitoring forms to all faculty instructing fellows. Instructors will provide current grades, possible concerns and recommendations. By midterm grades, each student will meet with the director and discuss her/his academic progress, service, internship, and transition.
The NC Teaching Fellow scholarship/loan program is a partnership between you and the state. If your student accepts the scholarship/loan and completes the program requirements which include four years of teaching in a North Carolina public school, the award is a scholarship. If your student chooses to withdraw from the program, is removed from the program, or chooses not to teach once earning their degree, the award becomes a loan that must be repaid by the student or you, the surety/co-signer, plus 10% interest.
North Carolina A&T Teaching Fellows Program will support your student as s/he pursues her/his degree and licensure to teach with quality extracurricular activities, and dedicated faculty and staff. The program will also provide support to you by keeping you aware of your student’s status within the program.
