The Urban Teacher Center (UTC) is a four-year, alternative teacher preparation program that operates in the Washington, DC region (and soon in additional cities). Each cohort participates in an intensive year-long residency, followed by a three-year teaching commitment in a high-need urban elementary, middle or high school. UTC residents prepare to become highly competent teachers; in addition to the clinical experience, they also enroll in a FREE Master’s of Education program that is directly relevant to the urban teacher. All UTC teachers are part of an unprecedented commitment to student performance: only those who can demonstrate that they can improve student learning will complete the program. Over time, UTC teachers will be among the most expert and results-oriented in the nation. For more information, visit us on the web at www.urbanteachercenter.org. Our FINAL application deadline for the 2012-13 school year is May 15, 2012. The program for the 2012-2013 school year will begin on June 20, 2012. The application is available via the UTC website at www.urbanteachercenter.org. Please also sign up for our last webinar on May 10 at 9PM EST through the Events Section of the UTC website.
Each year the UB Alumni Association awards three types of scholarships to deserving UB students. Learn more and apply for the Willie R. Evans Legacy Scholarship, the Alumnae Scholarship and the J. Scott Fleming Scholarship.
Willie R. Evans Legacy Scholarship
The Willie R. Evans scholarship assists currently enrolled UB students who are children or grandchildren of UB alumni who contribute to the growth and enrichment of the university through active membership and participation in the UB Alumni Association. The amount of the scholarship is determined annually by the UBAA Board of Directors. Nominations are accepted year-round, but must be submitted by June 30 to be considered for the next awards the following year.
UBAA Alumnae Scholarship
The UBAA Alumnae Scholarship is available for female students registered in any UB department or division. The award may be given to one recipient or shared equally by two recipients, depending on the applicant pool. The value of the scholarship varies and is determined by the UBAA Board of Directors. The deadline to apply is June 30.
J. Scott Fleming Scholarship
The J. Scott Fleming Scholarship was established in 1985 as a student-to-student scholarship to recognize full-time undergraduate and graduate students for their leadership efforts, through extracurricular and volunteer activities.
