Johns Hopkins' Krieger School of Arts and Sciences and School of Education have partnered to create the Baltimore Education Fellows Scholarship.
The program is open only to recent graduates of the Krieger School who want to make a difference in the classroom and are interested in urban education reform.
The fellows will receive full tuition support and a living stipend of $20,000 while earning a Master of Arts in Teaching degree.
The one-year program begins in June. Fellows will learn to teach in Baltimore City schools during daytime internships while completing 39 credits of graduate classes in the evenings. They will participate in Johns Hopkins campus and Baltimore City Public Schools events as they contribute to the field of education.
At the completion of the program, fellows will have Maryland state teaching certification and may apply for employment in Baltimore City schools.
