State Grant Allows School of Education to Provide Free Tuition to Prospective Teachers
Notre Dame of Maryland University is playing a leading role in addressing the teacher shortage across Maryland, with the School of Education using grant money provided by the Maryland Leads Initiative to offer free tuition and additional funding to prospective teachers from three county school systems.
“This grant will allow us to expand our programs to audiences that we might not otherwise have,” said Dr. Kathryn Doherty, dean of NDMU’s School of Education. “And it also provides full tuition funding, book money and fee reimbursements for students. It’s an incredible opportunity for them, and it allows us to fulfill our mission of using education to transform lives.”
