First Americans' Teacher Education Program (FATE)

The First Americans’ Teacher Education (FATE) grant program has as its primary goal the production of new American Indian teachers for American Indian communities. The program seeks to increase the number of highly qualified American Indian teachers who will teach in schools with significant American Indian student populations. The program proposes to address the shortage of American Indian teachers at all grade levels through a comprehensive strategy that will include licensure preparation and induction support. The program will also institutionalize a culturally relevant program in the School of Education.
