Males for Alabama Education (M.AL.E.) Scholarship Program

A scholarship program at Alabama A&M University, designed to attract more minority males into the teaching profession, is accepting applications again. The Males for Alabama Education (M.AL.E.) Initiative Scholarship is coordinated by the College of Education, Humanities and Behavioral Sciences and its Department of Teacher Education and Leadership.

The M.AL.E. Initiative will: (1) recruit undergraduate and graduate male students who express an interest in teaching students within Alabama's public P-12 schools; 2) Provide up to two years of tuition assistance for undergraduate juniors and seniors and up to two (2) years of tuition assistance for graduate students; (3) Provide funding and test preparation supports to complete assessments needed to meet state certification requirements (Praxis I Core, Praxis II content and EdTPA); (4) Provide mentorship and build collegiality through a student cohort system beyond certification completion; and (5) Provide pre-post job embedded professional and personal development opportunities for M.AL.E students. For each year of student participation in the M.AL.E. initiative, participants will be required to provide two (2) years of service within a public Alabama P-12 school.
