The Teacher Education Program (TEP) at UCSB was recently awarded the right to nominate two undergraduate students of color for the Woodrow Wilson-Rockefeller Brothers Fund Fellowship for Aspiring Teachers of Color. The fellowship is $30,000 and only students who are officially nominated by their undergraduate institution may apply for the fellowship. The TEP is currently recruiting for two applicants of color (African American/Black, Asian, Hispanic, Latino(a), Native American) with a 3.0 cumulative GPA, interested in teaching in a high-need urban or rural area, and currently enrolled as a UCSB senior in Fall 2010 & graduating by June 2011. Students that are interested in teaching, as well as students who are not currently considering teaching as a career option but would like the opportunity to give back to students in under-resourced and challenging urban and rural schools, are encouraged to apply. The deadline for applications is Friday, October 1st, 2010.
I would sincerely appreciate it if you could forward this email and its attachments to the email list-servs in your respective departments. If students have any questions, would like to apply, or if faculty have contact information for potential nominees, they may contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
