Teach Arizona students are eligible to apply for the Arizona Teachers Academy tuition scholarship, which pays full tuition and fees in exchange for an agreement to teach for two years in an Arizona public school following graduation. You may apply to the Academy prior to being accepted into Teach Arizona, but your Academy application will not be reviewed until you are accepted into Teach Arizona. They are separate applications.

All Teach Arizona applications are individually assessed. Teach Arizona faculty are happy to answer individual questions about your fit for this program. Please email teach@email.arizona.edu if you have any questions throughout the application process.
