Rural Teaching Fellowship

The $10,000 Colorado Rural Teaching Fellowship is available to selected candidates who complete a year-long clinical experience in a rural school district during the final year of their teacher preparation programs and commit to teaching for two years in a rural district after completion. Candidates who are selected for this fellowship, Rural Teaching Fellows, receive $5000 from their institute of higher education and $5000 from the Colorado Department of Higher Education as a lump sum (taxable income) or as a scholarship (may interfere with financial aid package). The year-long fellowships are created via partnerships between educator preparation programs (EPP) and rural Colorado schools / districts / BOCES or charter schools.
