The Teacher Education Program recognizes the financial burden the
graduate application fee represents for many students, particular
students from underrepresented communities. For the academic year
2023-2024 we are offering an Application Fee
Fellowship that, if awarded, would pay the
application fee for the Credential/MA Program during this year’s
admission cycle. If you would like to be considered for this
fellowship, please do not formally submit your online graduate
application and pay the application fee.
** Please note:
We are unable to reimburse applicants who submit their
online application and pay the application fee themselves.
The fee fellowship has no bearing on whether or not you
will be accepted into the Credential/MA program.
Priority will be given to
Applicants who are any of the following:
First Generation graduate students
Interested in pursuing a Bilingual Authorization
Interested in teaching in high need subject areas
