The Teacher Education Department is proud to offer additional support to our candidates though generous contributions from former educators and our external partnerships.

NEW: Residency Scholarship

The Teacher Residency Scholarship Program was established for CSU students enrolled in programs that meet the standard of quality set by the New Generation of Educators Initiative (NGEI) with the support of the
S. D. Bechtel, Jr. Foundation. The scholarship is designed to serve candidates in CSU teacher residencies and is available to those committed to teaching in a high-need school for two years. Focus should be in teaching
English learners, earning a bilingual credential, teaching in urban or high-need schools, or supporting students with special needs.
