Harvard Graduate School of Education – Teacher Prep Programs

The application is open for Harvard Graduate School of Education’s teacher prep program, which certifies secondary teachers in MA  but has a reciprocal license with all 50 states.  The program has two options: 1) Residency: students take classes while having an immediate impact as a teacher with a smaller teaching load. They also receive a salary in line with their teaching load (they are teachers of record day 1). 2) Internship: students take classes while taking on teaching responsibilities gradually throughout the year (they are not teachers of record).  Harvard is offering substantial scholarships: 80% tuition + $10,000 living stipend for all resident students and select highly qualified internship students. More information can be found on their website. There’s also a webinar on Thu, Sep 14 at 7-8 PM EST. Materials are due November 1.

EGF Accelerator Fellowship

The EGF Accelerator Fellowship is a fully remote 20 week program for very early stage nonprofits who are trying to improve education and life outcomes for low-income New Yorkers. It starts in January 2024 and runs through May 2024. It includes weekly two hour zoom meetings, outside reading and connecting with mentors (usually by zoom but sometimes IRL.) 

It’s perfect for early stage nonprofit leaders — people who are at the beginning of their journey or who are at that pivotal moment between start-up and growth. We require each founder to have, at least, a fiscal sponsor (Or have one by the start of the program.) We have also had successful applicants who are running a smaller, innovative program within a larger more established organization who want to grow in their jobs and maximize their impact. 

The Fellows get some financial support, a mentor, intensive consulting, the opportunity to take on a free-to-them intern, marketing and fundraising strategy and board building guidance. They also become part of a large and vibrant network of other founders, philanthropists and people in the nonprofit and education sector.
