FAQ

I have a bachelor's degree in Math/Science Education and am eligible for initial teacher certification. Am I eligible for the NYC Partnership Scholarships?

Unfortunately no, you are not eligible. Those who have already received degrees in teacher education and/or already hold teacher certification are not eligible for the NYC Partnership for Teacher Excellence program. Part of the philosophy of the Partnership program is to recruit new people to the field of teaching. You may, however, qualify for other scholarships at NYU Steinhardt. Steinhardt offers graduate programs for those who hold initial teacher certification or have graduated from undergraduate programs in teacher education in a wide range of subjects.
