Arizona Teachers Academy
The Arizona Teachers Academy at the University of Arizona is a voter-approved initiative to bring more qualified K-12 educators into the state's classrooms by offering student-teachers full-tuition scholarships and access to post-graduate induction services like instructional coaching and professional development. In exchange, academy-funded educators commit to teaching in an Arizona school, public or charter, for as many years as they received funding.
The ATA currently funds student-teachers in sixteen different graduate and undergraduate programs throughout the University of Arizona and its Tucson, Southern Arizona, and Phoenix-area campuses.
