Tennessee Minority Teaching Fellows Program

The Minority Teaching Fellows Program is intended to encourage talented minority Tennesseans to enter the teaching field in Tennessee. The award is $5,000 per year to pursue a teacher certification at an eligible Tennessee institution.


Those who receive the award incur an obligation to teach K-12 level in a Tennessee public school one year for each year the award is received. If recipients do not meet this obligation the award must be repaid.

The award may be renewed three times for a total of four years. The recipient must maintain at least a 2.5 cumulative grade point average and attend full-time to remain eligible.
Applications are available at high school counselor’s office, financial aid office, TSAC, or by clicking on one of the links above. Awards are very competitive and are based on funding. To be considered, TSAC must receive the completed application and required attachments by the April 15 deadline.
