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 Teachers College students to provide literacy education services in TC's partnership schools in Harlem (Teachers College Community School, CS 154 Harriet Tubman Learning Center, or PS 36, The Margaret Douglass School as determined by the TCCS Liaison and the REACH Director).
The Evalyn Edwards Milman Music Fellowship is a financial aid award in the amount of $10,000 and 6 tuition points per academic year for Teachers College students to provide music instruction at Teachers College Community School or CS 154 Harriet Tubman Learning Center in Harlem.
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 5 credit hours per semester. Awards are made for one year, but awards may be renewed for subsequent years provided the Fellow continues to meet the eligibility criteria and the needs of the project. The Fellow must establish and abide by a schedule determined together with the sponsor. It is expected that the Fellow will complete an average of ten hours of engagement with students in partnership schools each week. Current full-time TC employees are NOT eligible for the fellowship.
Students who wish to be considered for a Milman Fellowship for the 2024-2025 school year should check back here in early February 2024. Award decisions are announced in mid-April each year for internships starting in the fall.
