TEACH NYC - Scholarships for Prospective Teachers

Long Island University’s Brooklyn Campus collaborates with TEACH NYC on the graduate M.S.ED. in Bilingual School Counseling, the M.S.ED. in School Psychology and the Special Education Bilingual Extension for the M.S.ED. Teaching Urban Children with Disabilities (Grades 1-6) and the M.S.ED. Teaching Urban Adolescents with Disabilities (Grades 7-12) to provide funding opportunities.

The TEACH NYC scholarship program is designed to afford individuals the opportunity to earn a master's degree in a designated critical shortage area. The program provides full tuition payments to eligible undergraduate and graduate students enabling them to obtain New York State certification. In exchange, participants serve as teachers or clinicians and repay two years of service for each year of tuition assistance to work in a high-need New York City public school. As part of the program requirements, participants are required to attend annual staff development sessions and program meetings with Department of Education staff. Applications for the scholarship must be completed online through the TEACH NYC Web site.

You must be accepted to and matriculated in one of the above-mentioned graduate programs BEFORE you can apply to the TEACH NYC scholarship. We strongly encourage you to apply for admission to as soon as possible to facilitate your timely application to TEACH NYC for the scholarships.
