College of Charleston
Who Are We?
The program recruits high-achieving high school students into the education profession by providing up to a $24,000 fellowship. The financial aid functions as a scholarship if the Fellow teaches in the state of South Carolina for each year that they received the award; However, if the Fellow decides to teach in a different state or changes their major, they lose the scholarship and the financial aid becomes a loan and must be paid back.
"The program is meant to provide collaborative leadership in the recruitment, retention, and advancement of outstanding educators for all children in South Carolina." - CERRA
