Teachers College has created a unique opportunity for graduates of HBCUs, as part of our dedication to recruiting, training, and supporting excellence in teacher education to achieve social and educational equity in America.
The Diversity in Teacher Education Fellowship awards full tuition scholarships to up to three graduates from HBCUs, who best demonstrate an outstanding commitment to teacher education in urban areas. It is our hope that this Fellowship will support our growing relationship with graduates of HBCUs, and our dedication to improving education in high-need, public schools in New York City and across our nation.
