Teacher Education Fellows
DEVELOPING THE TEACHER AS SERVANT LEADER WITHIN A DIVERSE AND GLOBAL CONTEXT
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.
“Everyone says you can never prepare yourself for the classroom. The only way to prepare myself is to be in the classroom. I have really discovered that as a Teaching Fellow. It has allowed me to get that head start on my career!”
Hannah Bay Snider
“Teaching Fellows has allowed me to discover who I am as a teacher because of the real life experiences I have had throughout my academic career.”
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.
