TALCA Project scholarships have been available through a USDOE Title III grant (2007-2012) to students who have submitted an approved program of study that includes the TELL certificate program requirements.
There will no longer be scholarships available because Project TALCA funding concluded in 2011-12.
There were three components to the scholarships as described below:
Tuition remission has been awarded for the two required TELL courses (ED 346 and ED 621). The tuition remission funds are awarded when TELL scholarship recipients enroll in the courses: Funds are applied directly to student accounts following the add/drop period of each semester.
TELL scholarship recipients have had the option of participating in a paid internship during the fall in coordination with their pre-practicum experience. Interns work 3 days per week in the partner schools. Click for detailed information about internships.
