Established in 1986, the North Carolina Teaching Fellows Program is the most ambitious teacher recruitment program in the nation.

500 Scholarships Per Year...
17 Campuses
One Common Goal
The average profile of a Teaching Fellow includes an SAT score over 1100, a high school GPA of 4.0 or more on a weighted scale, and a rank in the top 10% of his/her high school graduating class. In keeping with the goal to recruit males and minorities, each year approximately 20% of the program's recipients are minority, while 30% are male.

Applicant Selection Process

There is currently no application process for a Teaching Fellows, as the NC General Assembly approved the legislation to phase out the Teaching Fellows Program as of June 30, 2012.
