In early 2013, eligibility requirements for Troops to Teachers changed. To review the new requirements for eligibility, please review this document.
Information is available in the following areas:
Financial assistance may be provided to eligible individuals in the form of a stipend up to $5,000 to help pay for teacher preparation costs or $10,000 to teach in a "high-needs" school. Persons receiving financial assistance must agree to teach for three years.
