Got tech chops? Become NC teacher tuition-free

Posted: Updated:
RALEIGH, N.C. -

A North Carolina non-profit is looking for people who want to become teachers in math, science and technology by capitalizing on the skills and experience developed from working in the field.

The NC STEM Teacher Education Program is offering a no-cost route to career-changers with a four-year college degree in a science, technology, engineering or mathematics field. The program aims to fill the high percentage of vacant math and science teaching slots in North Carolina high schools.

Applications are being accepted for a group of 48 candidates who will start training next summer for year-long apprenticeships.

All tuition, training costs and materials are fully paid and candidates receive a $2,500 stipend.

Interested applicants can find additional information and materials online from North Carolina New Schools.
