M.Ed. Fellowships

The Teacher Education Fellowship links graduate study with a yearlong clinical residency in a PreK-12 partner school.   

The application period for 2017-2018 Fellowships opens September 1, 2016.

Residencies allow Teacher Fellows to engage in a range of classroom-based activities including small group instruction, co-teaching, and ultimately, independent classroom instruction. Students work in a school district for a full academic year, gaining unparalleled and invaluable field experience.


Teacher Education Fellows take summer courses to prepare for their residency and then transition to evening classes while participating in their classrooms.  After completing their coursework, residency, and a portfolio project, Teacher Education Fellows graduate with a Master of Education (M.Ed.) and licensure in their area of specialization.
