Fellows attend master's degree coursework which is partially subsidized by the NYC Department of Education. Fellows are still responsible for a contribution toward their degree, but this is not an upfront or out of pocket expense.
The tuition contribution amount 2019 Fellows will be responsible for is still being finalized. Last year, Fellows were responsible for $12,000 toward the cost of their master’s degree. These costs are deducted from each DOE paycheck broken down in 44 consecutive, equal installments beginning in the fall once Fellows start teaching full-time.
