The UNCG Teacher Education Fellows Program emphasizes servant leadership within a diverse and global context. As participants in this community of like-minded pre-service teachers, scholarship recipients engage in teaching-related activities designed to develop and enhance their leadership abilities, commitment to the campus and broader community, and awareness of socio-cultural considerations from the individual to the global scale.
Due to the generosity of the Marian Franklin Scholarship, the Jacqueline W. & Jack H. Varner Scholarship, the J. Barnwell & Mary Blair Allison Scholarship, and the Sandra Green Marsh Class of 1961 Endowed UNCG Teacher Education Fellows Scholarship, participation in the UNCG Teacher Education Fellows Program includes scholarships of up to $20,000.00. Scholarship funds for tuition are distributed incrementally, with $3,500.00 distributed in the first year, $4,500.00 distributed in the second year, and $6,000.00 distributed in each of the last two years, as long as eligibility requirements are maintained.
Development of global awareness, leadership, and civic responsibility will occur through engagement in a variety of activities funded in part through the generosity of the Sarah Cole Jordan endowment.
These opportunities for an enriched professional and educational experience include:
