Teaching Fellows Commission sets application schedule

The North Carolina Teaching Fellows Commission announced today that the 2009-2010 application for the North Carolina Teaching Fellows Scholarship/Loan Program will be available online at www.teaching fellows.org beginning Aug. 14.
The deadline for students to return completed applications to a Teaching Fellows Liaison Counselor in a high school is Oct. 16, by the end of the school day.
Jo Ann Norris, associate executive director for the Public School Forum and administrator of the Teaching Fellows Program, said, “In order to meet the increasing demand for top quality teachers for North Carolina’s public schools, the program was created by the General Assembly in 1986, upon the recommendation of the Public School Forum of North Carolina.”
Each Teaching Fellow receives a $26,000 scholarship/ loan from the state, payable in $6,500 annual increments. The full loan is forgiven after the fellow has completed four years of teaching in North Carolina’s public schools.
Dr. Michael D. Priddy, chair of the North Carolina Teaching Fellows Commission, issued a challenge to North Carolina high school seniors.
“I encourage high school seniors willing to make dreams come true for future North Carolina students to apply for this one-of-a-kind opportunity,” he said.
The North Carolina Teaching Fellows Program continues to be the top teacher-recruitment program in the United States.
“The primary purpose of the program is to attract top high school seniors to become education majors and ultimately public school teachers,” said Kerry L. Mebane, director of the Teaching Fellows Program.
“In addition to the summer programs provided by the Teaching Fellows Commission, the 17 colleges and universities participating in the program offer unparalleled teacher education experiences ó experiences which produce high quality educators and leaders for the state’s public schools,” Mebane added.
Additional program information is available online via the Teaching Fellows Web site at www.teachingfellows. org.
