The Teri Young Memorial Scholarship supports individuals who have already demonstrated dedication to the field of education by serving as paraprofessionals in schools.
Teri Young, a passionate teacher and educational leader in New York City and Vermont, was the founding director of AUNE’s unique dual certification program in elementary and special education. Teri had a particular passion for supporting inclusion by helping teachers feel fully prepared to work with all students in the regular classroom setting. To help fulfill Teri’s vision, Antioch University has created this scholarship. Applicants must be new students entering the MEd in Elementary Education program with a specialization in Dual Elementary/Special Education licensure. Priority will be given to working paraprofessionals seeking dual Elementary/Special Education licensure on the basis of demonstrated financial need. Five scholarships will be awarded per academic year of $10,000 each. $2,500 will be awarded for each of the program’s sequence four terms.

New Hampshire’s Unique Educational Experiment
The state of New Hampshire is currently engaged in one of the most progressive educational experiments in the nation. All colleges and universities that provide educator development have joined together into a formal network designed to offer our students the highest quality in teacher preparation. We are currently in the process of piloting a new portfolio process for certification called the TCAP, which is based on having students demonstrate, through their student teaching and course work, that they have met all of the highest competencies required to teach. This is all part of the State’s on-going effort to transform teaching and learning.
Criminal Background Checks & Standardized Testing
NH state law [RSA 189:13-a(IX)(b)] requires criminal history record checks, for students who enroll in an educator preparation program at an institution of higher education. Additional criminal history record checks, administered by the placement district(s), are required for student teachers and interns. Additionally, local school districts may require a background check prior to the start of any field experience, and students must comply with the local policies. The cost of all background checks are out-of-pocket costs borne by the student. Your AUNE admissions counselor will provide you with the correct form for your licensure area.
All applicants to a New Hampshire Professional Educator Preparation Program must provide documentation of passing scores on a nationally recognized standardized test of basic skills, most commonly, the Praxis reading, writing, and math tests (Praxis Core). It may also be possible to fulfill this requirement by submitting SAT, ACT, or GRE scores to the NH Department of Education for confirmation of passing scores for the year the test was completed. Comparable state-level tests, like The Massachusetts Test for Educator Licensure can also be considered. Please ask your admissions counselor for further guidance if you have questions about this requirement.
