N.C. A&T College of Education Seeks Fellowship Applicants

Greensboro, N.C. (Sept. 11, 2017) - The College of Education at North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University is actively seeking applicants for the North Carolina A&T Teacher Residency Program. Qualified applicants will receive a $20,000 fellowship to attain a Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) from the university.

“This program provides a phenomenal opportunity to assist people who truly desire to positively impact the lives of young people in our public schools while simultaneously aiding these individuals with earning their master’s degree and their initial teaching license,” said Anthony Graham, dean of the College of Education.

Ideal applicants are recent college graduates with degrees in science, technology, engineering or mathematics (STEM) disciplines as well as current lateral entry teachers and teaching assistants or individuals who seek to make career changes. Applicants need to have earned a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or higher from their undergraduate program and have a strong desire to work with children or adolescents as a classroom teacher.

Applicants must complete the pre-screen application to determine if they meet the minimum eligibility criteria. Those who meet the requirements will be interviewed on Sept. 22. Applicants who transition through the pre-screening process will need to complete the MAT application.

Selected candidates will complete a 30-hour program in the appropriate discipline area. Candidates will work full-time in a selected school for 10 months as they apply classroom knowledge in real-time. Once candidates earn the master’s degree and teaching license, they must teach three consecutive years in a school in Randolph County Schools or Stokes County Schools.
