Opportunity to Support Tennessee State University


Purpose: To help increase and retain the number of well-prepared teachers from diverse backgrounds, resulting in a more diverse teacher workforce prepared to teach in our Nation’s low performing elementary and secondary schools and close achievement gaps. This program focuses on the various aspects of the teacher preparation pipeline, including:

  • Recruitment;

  • Preparation;

  • Support;

  • Placement; and

  • Retention of teachers for and in high-need local education agencies (LEAs) to support underserved students.

Through this program, the Secretary seeks to fund applicants that propose to incorporate evidence-based components and practices into their teacher preparation program.
