Opportunities for Scholars Pursuing Education Careers

Dear Scholars,

Interested in careers in education, public policy, social justice and impact? We have opportunities for you with two great organizations.


TFA provides service internships for undergraduates and teaching jobs for graduates. We will soon have a webinar to introduce you to all of their positions. Be on the lookout for that email.

In the meantime: Reach out to a TFA campus recruiter to learn about TFA’s opportunities and get help with applying. Tell them you are reaching out at the recommendation of TheDream.US. To download a list of TFA recruiters on your campus click here. Two positions, among others, they can tell you about are:

a) The Accelerate Fellowship: A paid, summer internship for current juniors interested in social impact. This is a highly competitive position for those who can demonstrate extraordinary leadership experience and have high GPAs. Contact [email protected], TFA’s Sr. Managing Director, or a TFA campus recruiter. They can help you put together a winning application. Application Deadline is 12/5. To apply go here.

b) Teaching Jobs post-grad: If you are a junior or senior you can apply now for a job after graduation. Check out TFA webinars on their Events Page.

TFA supports DACA applicants. Check out their DACA Recipients site here.


REMINDER: We are hosting a webinar on Summer Teaching Internships with Breakthrough Collaborative (BTC) –

BTC offers college students the opportunity to experience the realities of the classroom while planning and teaching their own academic courses to small groups of students from under-served areas.
