By Megan Wehring
The nation’s largest alternative certification provider is accepting applications for its new scholarship program.
Teachers of Tomorrow is seeking applicants for its New Teacher Scholarship for those interested in becoming a teacher. The organization will award up to 20 scholarships in several states in which it operates, including Arizona, Florida, Indiana, Michigan, Nevada, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Texas. The deadline to apply for the scholarship is November 30 and recipients will be announced in January.
Although the application deadline is in November, applicants must also register for Teachers of Tomorrow by December 15 to be considered. Other qualifications include completing the application form and writing a 200-300 word essay on what inspired them to choose a teaching career and why they think it will be a worthy career.
“We are committed to helping individuals pursue a career in teaching,” Trent Beekman, CEO of Teachers of Tomorrow, said in a press release. “Teachers of Tomorrow is honored to provide scholarships to individuals across the country to help them achieve their dreams of becoming full-time teachers through our alternative certification program. We will continue to welcome future teachers to our program and support them in any way we can.
Teachers of Tomorrow offers guidance and support to incoming teachers through the certification process, while meeting the specific needs of each state. The organization works closely with applicants, school districts, human resource representatives, and campus principals to ensure they receive the best possible talent in their classrooms.
• 87% of principals surveyed in 2016 felt that candidates for the Teachers of Tomorrow program were prepared for their first year.
• Candidates are hired in high-demand fields, including STEM, bilingual and special education.
• Less than 1% of all program graduates hired in-class are denied standard certification by their director after completing their probationary year.
• To date, over 70,000 teachers have been licensed through Teachers of Tomorrow.
Each scholarship holder has until January 31, 2024 to be hired as a full-time teacher to receive scholarship benefits. The scholarship covers the full program fee, which is up to $6,000, and does not apply to registration fees or any other associated costs.
