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 15 graduate and undergraduate programs in five different colleges and departments throughout the UA's Tucson, Southern Arizona, and Phoenix-metro area campuses!
