Teachers of Tomorrow Pipeline Program Application

The College of Education and Human Development welcomes high school students interested in a career in teaching to apply to our Teachers of Tomorrow Program. This program will begin with a live-in summer institute on the Newark Campus for two weeks in June. The program will continue with advisement and registration for college credits to be taking during the Summer 2020 term that will count toward their UD teacher education degree.

This program is intended to increase the number of Delaware students from underrepresented backgrounds (see eligibility below) in UD’s teacher education programs.

To apply for this program you will need the following information:
