NYS Teacher Certification Exams Voucher Lottery

NYU Steinhardt has been issued 8 edTPA e-vouchers with a value of $300 each and 16 NYSTCE e-vouchers with a value of $179 each. The 8 edTPA e-vouchers expire on April 3, 2015, the 16 NYSTCE e-vouchers expire on October 3, 2014.

We invite you to enter a lottery for the awarding of one of these vouchers by completing the survey at the link below.  Recipients will be randomly selected after applying and meeting the eligibility criteria below. The first 8 eligible applicants randomly chosen will receive an edTPA e-voucher, the following 16 a NYSTCE e-voucher.  As Speech and Language Disabilities (SLD) and Bilingual School Counseling certification do not require the edTPA, students in these majors will only be entered into the NYSTCE e-voucher drawing.

Submission Deadline: Wednesday, December 4, 2013 at 12pm.  Recipients will be notified by e-mail during the week of December 9th.
