CTF is a partnership between the Cleveland Foundation, Cleveland State University, and the Cleveland Metropolitan School District (CMSD). This grant funded program engages highly qualified teacher candidates in paid practicum and student teaching experiences in select CMSD schools. With a national teacher shortage, CTF is creating a pipeline of strong teacher candidates committed to urban education, who will be considered for hire the following year.

Eligible Applicants must be in a licensure program in the College of Education and Human Services and meet all academic and non-academic requirements for their final year experiences (i.e. practicum/student teaching, internship and/or apprentice teaching) in 2020-2021. Applicants must also be US citizens or permanent residents and have a commitment to urban education.
