|Scholarships Offered for Black Men
Who Want to Become Teachers
|The "Call Me Mister" program—affiliated with Clemson University, Benedict College, Claflin University, Morris College, and South Carolina State University—is offering free tuition for Black men who want to become teachers.
The program combines the special strengths and resources of Clemson University with the individualized instructional programs offered by four historically Black colleges in South Carolina: Benedict College, Claflin University, Morris College, and South Carolina State University.
To provide even greater opportunity and access, students have the option of first attending one of the system's two-year partner colleges before transferring to one of the four-year institutions to complete their baccalaureate degree. In addition, the project has limited enrollment in the middle school Master of Art in Teaching program. Ten different colleges and universities are participating in the program.
The Black Colleges are looking for future Black male teachers and will send then to universities/college for four years FREE. The program is for male students only.
Interested parents and their students should request an application and read the mission statement. To request an application, go to www.callmemister.clemson.edu/index.htm.
