Graduate Students Awarded Veteran Assistantships
Three military veterans will begin earning their master’s degrees at UNC Charlotte aided by substantial awards provided by the University’s Graduate School. The funding, called assistantships, will cover tuition and health insurance, plus a $12,000 annual stipend. Total value of each assistantship is roughly $36,000. The awards require the students to aid professors in their departments with research and teaching.
Associate Provost and Graduate School Dean Tom Reynolds initiated the program that will select three military veterans each year to receive the two-year awards to pursue master’s or doctoral degrees. This year’s selected veterans represent the U.S. Army and Air Force; click here to learn more about the recipients.
New Cohort Joins Charlotte Teachers Institute
The Charlotte Teachers Institute (CTI) has welcomed its new cohort of 104 Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools (CMS) teachers into its innovative, interdisciplinary seminars for 2015.
"This year’s CTI Fellows represent the wide range of teachers in CMS, from new to veteran, kindergarten to 12th grade and physics to interior design," said CTI Director Scott Gartlan. "We continue to create significant growth opportunities for teacher leaders looking to deepen their knowledge base and impact the lives of their students."
CTI’s eight concurrent seminars began with an orientation at Discovery Place in April and will run through November. CTI seminars are led by faculty experts in the arts and sciences, including four from Davidson College and four from UNC Charlotte. Seminars meet on those campuses and also at the Discovery Place Education Studio.
