2017: $25,000 to African American Teaching Fellows

2017AfricanAmTeachingFellowsIncreasing diversity and multicultural awareness in the local public school systems is the mission of African American Teaching Fellows (AATF). To help achieve this, AATF will use their $25,000 Women UNited grant to provide college tuition assistance to five African American student fellows in exchange for a commitment to teaching in the Charlottesville-Albemarle area after graduation for the same number of years for which they received funding. Fellows are also given professional support and guidance on leadership development, as well as opportunities geared to connecting the fellows to our community.
