Arizona Teachers Academy award

Apply for admission by June 1 and we’ll cover your application fee.

Arizona Teachers Academy awards are available for new Arizona resident transfer and graduate students for Fall 2023. To be considered, you need to be enrolled! Awards will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis based on time of enrollment.

The ATA award covers tuition and program fees for students who complete an initial teacher certification program and fulfill a commitment to teach in an Arizona public school after graduation.

To be added to the ATA waitlist, complete the following steps:

Step 1

Submit this expression of interest, if you haven’t already.

Step 2

Apply for admission to a qualifying undergraduate or graduate teacher-preparation program at ASU. Students submitting an application will have their application fee covered. When you submit your application, select pay app fee later. You will not have to pay your application fee. Selecting “pay app later” lets us know to cover your fee if you have submitted the expression of interest form referred to in step 1.

Step 3

Complete and submit the 2023-24 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), if you haven’t already.

Step 4

Once admitted, schedule an appointment with the MLFTC advising team to enroll in classes.

As an additional resource, explore the many other forms of financial aid available to ASU students.

If you have additional questions about the ATA award, financial aid in general or your next steps, feel free to reach out to the MLFTC recruitment team.
