It is often difficult to not let financial details inhibit us from pursuing our dreams. If you have a desire to become a teacher and the cost of tuition appears to be a roadblock for you, the Leonore Annenberg Teaching Fellowship just may be what you’ve been looking for to take action.
The Leonore Annenberg Teaching Fellowship provides a $30,000 stipend for a Master of Teaching degree at the Curry School of Education for students who have majored in Mathematics, Science or Spanish. Fellows then teach for three years with ongoing mentoring in schools that serve a significant number of high needs students.
Designed as a Rhodes Scholarship for teaching, the Annenberg Fellowship seeks to raise teaching’s prestige and create a new gold standard for teacher preparation by choosing candidates of the highest caliber, character, and potential. It’s goals include preparing outstanding teacher candidates and placing these candidates in high needs schools and developing a core of teacher leaders.
