UNH offers M.Ed. Opportunity for STEM Undergrads

Teacher Residency for Rural Education (TRRE) is a grant-funded program from the U.S. Department of Education which prepares teachers to work in rural, high-need NH schools. TRRE offers an opportunity for individuals to earn a master’s degree in education from UNH and an initial NH teacher certification in elementary or secondary, math or science. Accepted residents participate in a summer institute, a community internship, and a year-long residency at a partnership school in rural NH.

Teaching residents are provided with a $28,000 living stipend, new laptop computer, and 50% tuition discount during the 15-month program. In return, residents commit to working in a rural, high- needs NH school for three years upon graduation, during which time they benefit from two years of mentoring and induction support.

Come Learn About Different Teaching Opportunities: October/November Events
