Scholarship funded program - Institute for the Recruitment of Teachers based at Phillips Andover
As you know, I am the faculty coordinator for the Mellon Mays Undergraduate Fellowship program at Carleton, a program that supports a select cohort of students of color imagine a future as a scholar-teacher in higher education and to pursue a PhD. One of the correlate initiatives supported by the Mellon Foundation is the Institute for the Recruitment of Teachers based at Phillips Andover. IRT is a program designed to prepare and support students in applying to graduate school, and its mandate is much broader than the MMUF program and so it does very much invite students preparing to go on to Master's programs and who want to teach in the K-12 system. Here is a link to their website.
Because Carleton is a MMUF institution, all Carleton students are eligible to apply. We have had about 6-7 Mellon Fellows do either the internship program (in which they attend a summer workshop in July) or the associate program (where they receive alot of support in the grad application process); the experiences have been very positive. The Intern program is intended for rising Seniors; the Associate program for seniors and people out of school.
The summer program features:
1) A rigorous seminar experience on issues of race, class, gender, and privilege in education as well as occasions for micro-teaching'
2) GRE Prep
3) Workshops on writing statements of purpose/personal statements
4) Graduate School Fair attended by grad school admissions officers (the participating schools waive application fees for IRT participants)
The associate program offers support during the grad application process, fee waivers, the grad school fair, and IRT's consolidated application process.
On Tuesday of this coming week, Malissa Brennan of IRT will be on campus and having an information session on Tuesday evening from 5-6 pm in Leighton 236 (the new classroom).
