Turn exceptional college graduates into excellent teachers.
The Mississippi Teacher Corps (MTC) selects exceptional college graduates to teach in high-poverty public schools in Mississippi. MTC provides training, support, certification, and a full scholarship for a Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) from the University of Mississippi. During the school year, participants receive full pay and benefits from their school district and attend graduate classes at the University of Mississippi.
Each year, MTC accepts between 25-35 candidates. Due to the size of the program, MTC can offer individualized support. All participants move as a cohort through each stage of the training and coursework.
