Important Program Update: Due in part to California’s emergency response and state budget revisions vital to responding to the COVID-19 pandemic, the GSTG program has changed. While the GSTG program is accepting applications from currently enrolled eligible students, the GSTG program awards are only for students currently enrolled toward earning a teaching credential in special education. Interested students may email questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Golden State Teacher Grant program (GSTG) is for students who are currently enrolled in a teacher preparation program to earn a credential in the high need field of special education and commit to teach at a priority school, in California for four years, within five years after completing a teacher preparation program.
GSTG awards of up to $20,000 are available to eligible, currently enrolled students in California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CTC) approved teacher preparation programs within a California institution of higher education. College and University campuses will use their own selection criteria and procedures to identify eligible students. Apply for a Golden State Teacher Grant here: https://gstg.csac.ca.gov.
