Mississippi Teacher Corps

Mississippi Teacher Corps

The Mississippi Teacher Corps is a two-year program, similar to the Peace Corps, that recruits college graduates to teach in Mississippi schools, primarily in the Mississippi Delta. The program is designed for non-education majors and offers a host of benefits, including: teacher training and certification, free tuition for a Master's degree in education from the University of Mississippi, and job placement that includes full pay and benefits. All candidates must have received or expect to receive a BachelorÕs degree before beginning the program and have a GPA of at least 3.0 on a 4.0 scale. No previous education course work is required or expected. For application deadlines and more information, please see the fellowship website.
