Teachers for a Competitive Tomorrow
Summer Internships for Freshmen, Sophomores and Juniors
Science or Mathematics major?
Thinking about teaching?
Not sure you've got what it takes to be a teacher?
The TCT program will pay you to find out.
Science and Mathematics undergraduates have the opportunity to explore the world of teaching while participating in a paid internship. TCT fellows are paid for summer TCT work at a rate of $450/week for up to eight weeks. Available internships are listed on this site, but interns who don't plan on staying near Williamsburg can work with organizations in their area to create their own opportunities. At the end of your internship, you will have gained hands-on teaching experience or will have participated in a research project that supports teaching science or mathematics. All freshmen and sophomores planning to major in mathematics or science are eligible for a fellowship. Juniors are eligible for the Summer
Internship if they are on track to complete the Teacher Certification by the end of their senior year.
At the end of the summer, you will have the option of applying to the School of Education to continue down the path to teaching certification. If you choose, you may apply for a Noyce Scholarship, which provides funding for a fifth year of school culminating in a master's degree and teaching certificate.
