Social Action and Justice Education Fellowship Program, Arcadia University
Addressing the nationwide shortage of educators of color, Arcadia’s Social Action and Justice Education (SAJE) Fellowship prepares students to serve as classroom teachers, provide mentorship in diverse communities, and lead schools, programs, and educational opportunities geared toward social justice. Each SAJE fellow will earn a bachelor’s degree aligned with Arcadia’s Secondary Education track, leading to certification in Biology, Chemistry, English, General Science, Mathematics, or Social Studies.
We are recruiting for fall 2020, 10 students of color into secondary teacher education. Traditional and non-traditional students are welcomed for this undergraduate, four year program.
- Full or partial tuition (70% discount) and housing scholarships, study abroad funding, and an included MacBook.
- Educational support from academic coaches and a summer prep program.
- Field work, leadership experiences, justice training, and cultural competency courses.
