The New York City Teaching Fellows program is preparing a critical mass of exceptional teachers committed to a better future for the NYC students who need them most. Fellows complete a master’s degree that is subsidized by the NYC Department of Education while teaching full-time in a public school, allowing for a direct transition into the classroom.
Since 2000, the Fellows program has provided New York City students with thousands of talented new teachers. Today, Fellows work in 80 percent of New York City’s 1,800 public schools and represent 12 percent of the city’s active teaching force.
The priority application deadline is November 6th, 2014.

Are you interested in science, service, and stewardship? If so, the NOAA Educational Partnership Program with Minority Serving Institutions Undergraduate Scholarship Program (USP) is looking for you. USP scholarships are for rising junior undergraduate students majoring in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) fields that directly support NOAA’s mission.
If selected, students receive total awards valued at up to $35,000 in support during their junior and senior years. First, the recipients attend a two-week orientation at NOAA in Silver Spring, MD. Next, they complete a nine week paid summer internship at NOAA Headquarters in Silver Spring, MD, between May and July of the first summer. Then, during the second summer, students complete paid internships at NOAA facilities across the country (students are paid a stipend and receive a housing allowance during this internship). Finally, at the end of both summer internships, students present the results of their projects at an education and science symposium in Silver Spring, MD (travel expenses paid).
The application period is September 1, 2014 to January 30, 2015.
To be eligible, you must be a U.S. citizen currently enrolled or accepted as a full-time 2nd year student in a four-year academic program or a 3rd year student in a five-year program in a discipline related to NOAA’s programs and mission at an accredited minority serving institution (John Jay qualifies).
