Evalyn Edwards Milman Literacy Fellowship

The Evalyn Edwards Milman Literacy Fellowship is a financial aid award in the amount of $10,000 and 6 tuition points per academic year for two Teachers College students to provide literacy education services in TC's partnership schools. The Evalyn Edwards Milman Music Fellowship is a financial aid award in the amount of $10,000 (no tuition points) per academic year for a Teachers College student to provide music education in a TC partnership school.

Students are selected for the fellowships based on the needs of the partnership schools and on students’ experience. Preference is given to TC students enrolled in the literacy specialist program or music education program. Fellowship selections are made by a committee consisting of OSCP staff in consultation with faculty members from the Curriculum and Teaching department and the Music department. 

Students applying for the Evalyn Edwards Milman Literacy or Music Fellowships must be matriculated and enrolled in a minimum of five credit hours per semester.

The 2021-2022 application deadline has now passed. The 2022-2023 application will be live in February 2022. Award decisions are announced during the summer for internships starting in the fall. Awards may be renewed in subsequent years, provided the recipients continue to meet the eligibility criteria and the needs of the schools where they are placed.
