Shady Hill School offers an Urban Teaching Fellowship to an individual who is committed to public education and interested in a dual apprenticeship in an independent and public school. Ideally, recipients of the Urban Teaching Fellowship will complete the apprentice year, earn a graduate degree in education from Lesley University, and teach in a public school upon graduating from the program. The Urban Teaching Fellow spends September through December at Shady Hill School and January through June in a public school.
AMOUNT OF FELLOWSHIP AWARD
The Fellowship covers Shady Hill’s tuition ($11,900) excluding the $600 enrollment deposit, and a generous housing stipend.
