The program is the most competitive teaching program in the country, selecting about 25 applicants each year--less than 5 percent of the more than 600 applicants who apply. In addition to full teacher's pay and benefits, participants receive a full scholarship for a Master's Degree in Education in Curriculum and Instruction and specialized training for teaching in high-poverty, high-need areas.
