The Tennessee General Assembly established the Minority Teaching Fellows Program in 1989 to attract talented minority Tennesseans to enter the teaching field. Awards are very competitive and based on funding. Renewal applicants are given first priority. Recipients must submit a signed 'Statement of Intent' to teach one year for each year the scholarship was awarded in a Tennessee public kindergarten, elementary or secondary school and, after graduation, annual statements of employment to TSAC.
