CEIS - Partners in Education Fellowship and Felzer Scholarship

The mission of Partners in Education (PIE) is to support excellence in the preparation of future teachers at Cal Poly Pomona. The PIE Fellowship provides an opportunity for teacher candidates to earn $5,000 during their clinical practice training. Please note: Students awarded fellowships are not eligible for reimbursement for terms of clinical practice already completed.

The Felzer Scholarship, named in honor of longtime electrical engineering Professor Alan Felzer, is for single subject candidates who are seeking a credential in one of the STEM disciplines OR a multiple subject candidate seeking to become a specialist in a STEM discipline at the elementary or middle school level. In order to apply for the Felzer Scholarship, you must attach an original lesson plan that includes an inquiry-based lesson that reflects the pedagogy required to meet the state common core standards.
