    Greetings, School and District Leaders. Please share the following information with your counselors and students:
    The University of North Carolina at Greensboro is now accepting applications for its next cohort of Teacher Education Fellows. We hope that you will share the attached flyer with any of your seniors interested in careers in teaching.
    The UNCG Teacher Education Fellows Program awards a $20,000.00 scholarship distributed incrementally over four years of study at UNCG. In addition to scholarships, the UNCG Teacher Education Fellows Program includes a variety of other benefits, including integrated seminars, networking events, community engagement opportunities, and leadership development. Fellows also live in relative proximity to one another as part of the Residential Colleges or Lloyd International Honors College. Additionally, Fellows study abroad during their sophomore year as part of the global focus of the program.
    To be eligible for participation in the UNCG Teacher Education Fellows Program, a student must be a North Carolina resident and should have a recommended minimum 3.80 weighted cumulative high school GPA and a minimum SAT score of 1100 (verbal and math--approximately 1170 in the revised format) or ACT composite score of 24. Students must also select one of the following UNCG majors that lead to N.C. teaching licensure:
    *Elementary Education
    *Middle Grades Education
    *Special Education
    *Dual (Elementary and Special) Education
    *One of the following majors in the College of Arts and Sciences with Secondary Education concentrations:
    - Anthropology

    - History
    - Integrated Science

    If your students meet these criteria, we hope they will consider applying for a spot in this scholarship program by completing the UNCG Teacher Education Fellows Application. Priority will be given to those applications (to both the University and the Program) received by January 1, 2017.
    For more information, see the attached flyer and visit http://utlc.uncg.edu/teacher-education-fellows.

    The “best” summer opportunity awaits current high school juniors on the campus of Appalachian State University. The Martha Guy Summer Institute for Future Business Leaders (MGSI) has a solid, 13-year history of inspiring students through exploration of the business world, and we are now accepting applications for our 2017 Cohort.

    Unique aspects of MGSI

    · Unlike most summer opportunities, MGSI combines a residential experience with out of state travel. Following two weeks on campus at Appalachian State University, the program concludes with a week of travel to various business and cultural/entertainment sites.

    · Each MGSI class is small. Twenty-four students are selected. The group size provides a much more intimate, personal experience for each participant.

    · It is quite affordable considering the extensive travel, excursions and activities; tuition is $1,800 plus a meal plan fee of $350.

    **Need-based scholarships are available to qualified applicants.

    Which students are well suited for MGSI?

    · We are seeking students who have a sincere interest in business as a college major and demonstrate leadership potential. Some candidates have an entrepreneurial spirit, or have unique or extensive part-time work experience. Also consider your most competitive students among under-represented groups and populations. Interested students should demonstrate academic achievement.

    · Students who embrace and appreciate new people, opportunities and experiences are ideal for MGSI. They should also be well-prepared to be away from home and able to manage a demanding schedule.

    · Application deadline is February 24th 2017
