Teach Forward Houston Acceptances Announced, students receive $20,000 to attend UH, teach in HISD after college

Posted on Updated on

This year, HISD and the University of Houston partnered once again, offering a teacher preparation program with $20,000 in free tuition over four years. Through the Teach Forward Houston program, these HISD graduates interested in teaching will receive free tuition at the University of Houston, in exchange for teaching four years in HISD after graduation.

We are pleased to announce that the 40 Teach Forward Houston fellows have been identified! Each accepted student demonstrates a history of participation in extracurricular activities and service in leadership roles, as well as a deep desire to give back to their community through education.

Fellows will earn a degree in teaching and learning, a UH program specifically designed to equip teachers with the skills they need to be successful in large, diverse, urban school districts like HISD. They will also receive additional professional development and internship opportunities, as well as personalized coaching and mentorship throughout the fellowship.

See below for a list of our 2017-2018 Teach Forward Houston cohort, and congratulations to these exceptional, soon-to-be HISD educators!
