2/13/2008

FORT MYERS, FL - Florida Gulf Coast University, through a grant from the Florida Department of Education, awarded 35 post-graduates full tuition scholarships to complete their state-approved alternative teacher certification program.

The Teacher Immersion Program (TIP) consists of nine courses and several workshops (taught via a flexible schedule), which prepare qualified candidates for the Florida Professional Educators Certificate. Three of the courses provide nine graduate credits that may be applied toward a master's degree.

FGCU is now recruiting for its TIP summer cohort, for which grant funding will be available. Visit the TIP website at http://coe.fgcu.edu/tip.html for more details.
