Program Overview

  • The Institute for Recruitment of Teachers (IRT) empowers talented underserved and underrepresented future educators to teach and serve as leaders in American education because diversity is essential to excellence.

Program Benefits

  • The IRT offers two distinct programs: the Summer Workshop for college juniors and seniors who intend to pursue graduate study immediately upon completion of their undergraduate degree; and the Associate Program for college seniors and recent graduates who want to continue their educational studies. Participants of both programs are sponsored by the IRT as they apply to graduate programs offered by a consortium of 40 universities.
