APPLY TO TEACH FOR AMERICA EARLY
If you will have your bachelor's degree by June 2017, you can apply early for Teach For America's 2017 corps. Here are a few reasons why you might want to apply early:
You are planning to apply to Teach For America's 2017 corps and you want the certainty of having an early confirmed offer.
You have a summer internship that may lead to a full-time job offer, and you’d like to consider that position and Teach For America on the same timeline.
You want to know if this option is on the table before you consider opportunities during the fall job recruitment season.
You are interested in accessing unique leadership development opportunities available to early admitted applicants during your senior year.
You won’t be able to apply during your final year because you’ll have a conflict with our admissions timeline.
- HOW TO APPLY
- PREPARING FOR THE APPLICATION PROCESS
Our admissions process is designed to help us identify whether applicants possess the characteristics we’ve seen in our most successful corps members. We admit people whose unique strengths convince us that they have what it takes to lead students to significant academic success. Juniors and co-terming seniors will be evaluated on the same criteria as any other applicant, and we encourage you to apply when you believe your application will be the strongest, whether that is now or in your senior year.
Applicants to Teach For America must submit an online application. Applications are non-binding. Subsequent rounds of the admissions process will include an online activity, phone interview, and final interview. If you are admitted to the corps, you will attend our summer training in summer 2017 and begin teaching in fall 2017.
