Mercer Partnership-Generate Grant Program

NCSS is partnering with Mercer University to enhance our “Grow Your Own” program through the GENERATE Grant Program. We are excited about this opportunity to support those interested in pursuing a career in education through our partnership with Mercer University through the GENERATE Grant Program. If you have a bachelor’s degree in a non-education field, Mercer has a degree program in which you can earn a Master of Arts in Teaching for middle grades education, secondary education, or P-12 education. If you do not have a degree, and currently serve as a paraprofessional, they are offering a Bachelor of Science in Education in Early Learning & Development (Birth – K). Some of our incredible paraprofessionals, with or without degrees, have asked how the school district can help them to become certified teachers. However, if you are currently teaching and hold a provisional certificate or a waiver this program might be for you too!

Why should you be interested? I am glad you asked. This is an opportunity to go to college to earn a degree where some or all tuition and fees are covered by a grant---it just depends on the program you select! The total funding covered by the GENERATE grant will depend on the program that you choose.
