Troops to Teachers
Troops to Teachers (TTT) assists transitioning military service members to begin a career as public school teachers by providing counseling, referral services, assisting them to meet education and licensing requirements, and securing a teaching position.
Pending availability of funds, eligible individuals may receive a stipend of up to $5K to help pay for certification costs, or a bonus of $10K to teach in schools serving a high percentage of students from low-income families.
Those accepting the stipend or bonus agree to teach for three years in targeted schools in accordance with the authorizing legislation.
SUNY Empire participates in the Troops to Teachers program for our Master of Arts in Teaching degree program. For more information, call 800-847-3000, Extension 2779.
