Programs for Undergraduate Students
Undergrad Urban Education Pathway
This program is designed specifically for undergraduate students at Smith College, Mt. Holyoke, Amherst, Hampshire and UMass-Amherst. Selected candidates participate in three experiences: fall orientation sessions, a January-term fellowship in an urban classroom, and a seminar in the spring focused on urban education in Western Mass.
In addition to a foundational year of experiences in urban education, Urban Ed Scholars will continue to have unique development opportunities and access to mentorship and career resources, professional development sessions, and access to the resources of Smith Education & Child Study Program.
With clear links to future employment in Western Massachusetts, we hope many scholars participating in the pathway will choose to teach in one of the 27 Teach Western Mass partner schools in Holyoke and Springfield after graduation and completing applicable licensure programs.
Application Timeline: We will be accepting applications in Spring of 2018.
How To Apply: Online application available will be available here. Check back in Spring of 2018!
