Arizona Teachers Academy
The current funding round is currently open to students accepted to teaching certification programs for Spring 2020, Summer 2020, and Fall 2020. For more information, please see the "Application" page.
We are proud to be part of the Arizona Teachers Academy, a major funding initiative by the Arizona Legislature, the Office of the Governor, and the state’s public universities, to bring more qualified K-12 teachers into Arizona’s classrooms by providing teachers with full-tuition scholarship, and — upon graduation and certification — access to induction services like instructional coaches, curricular resources, and professional development opportunities. In exchange, academy-funded teachers must commit to teaching in an Arizona school, public or charter, for as many years as they received funding.
The other good news? The program has been so successful that we've expanded it to include 16 graduate and undergraduate programs in six different colleges and departments throughout the University of Arizona and its Tucson, Southern Arizona, and Phoenix-metro area campuses!
