Interested in issues of race, poverty, education and social justice? The Mississippi Teacher Corps application deadline is Monday, December 20th.
The Mississippi Teacher Corps (MTC) is the most competitive teaching program in the country. The two-year program, designed for non-education majors, recruits college graduates to teach in the Mississippi Delta and other “critical-needs” areas.
MTC offers a host of benefits, including teacher training and certification, a full scholarship for a master’s degree in education, a MacBook, job placement that includes full pay and benefits, and, most importantly, the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of students in one of the poorest areas of the country.
During the summer training all participants receive free housing on-campus and a $1,000 stipend. During the school year all participants receive full pay and benefits.
All participants complete a final portfolio of their experiences which you can view here. The application deadline is Monday, December 20th. Applications must be received by 11:59 PM (PST) on Monday evening.
