Answers to Frequently Asked Questions Ignite Fellowship

I am a future Teach For America corps member and/or I am a Teach For America alumni, is the application the same?

There is a shortened application for admitted corps members and TFA alumni. You will be able to identify yourself in the eligibility questions on the general application and the system will transfer you to the shortened application with approximately 1 short answer question.

In the majority of cases, renewing fellows, accepted corps members, TFA alums, and previously accepted new fellows (deferrals) will be automatically accepted into the Fellowship. However there may be some instances where we hold your application for further review and may reach out to you to learn more (i.e. due to your response to the short answer question or your previous experience in the Fellowship).
