We’re looking for students who want to better the lives of children, adolescents and families in underserved communities — and who want to help us pioneer a new way to supply teachers for rural and semi-rural areas in North Carolina.
The NC State College of Education and The Innovation Project (TIP), a collaborative of 24 school districts in North Carolina, have established a partnership to provide a $10,000 financial award to at least 10 students on track to graduate in December 2019 or May 2020 who teach for at least two years after graduation in one of five public school districts facing teaching shortages.
As part of the TIP Teaching Scholars Award Program, you will help create a pipeline of highly qualified teachers for school districts that most need teachers. You will also receive enrichment and mentoring opportunities that will further prepare you to meet the needs of your students.
