Teachers of Tomorrow

The Teachers of Tomorrow program is a joint collaboration between the New York City Department of Education and the New York State Education Department and is designed to recruit and sustain well-prepared, highly motivated certified classroom teachers who serve in schools which have been designated as high-need. The TOT incentive program provides tax-free grants to teachers who dedicate themselves to the students in these schools. Eligible teachers could qualify for awards of up to $3,400 annually for a maximum of four (4) years. This grant is only for teachers who are employed with the NYC public schools and you cannot apply for this grant before you are hired.

Applicants for the 2006-2007 school year will be contacted shortly regarding the mandatory July meeting date. Be informed the July meetings will be held during the first three (3) weeks of July. Additional dates may be added.
