Diversification Fellowship Fund
The Veritas Prep Teacher Diversification Fellowship Fund was established to help educators and aspiring educators who identify as people of color enter or remain in education by removing common financial barriers.
The fund was established with a grant from the Massachusetts Teacher Diversification Pilot Program, a state-funded grant program that provides approximately $2 million in competitive funding to support local school and district efforts to strengthen and diversify existing teacher recruitment and retention programs.
Candidates can apply for access to funding for education, MTEL test fees, relocation assistance and loan reimbursement. New and current associate teachers and lead teachers are eligible to apply, and Teach Western Mass (TWM) residents who identify as Black, Indigenous or people of color can also apply for TWM tuition coverage.
Recipients must commit to working at Veritas Prep high school or middle school for three years. All recipients will receive access to free MTEL test preparation, if applicable, and may receive an additional signing bonus.
