Teacher Pledge

UW-Madison School of Education Wisconsin Teacher Pledge Program

How to pay for college? That’s a question a lot of people face. And we understand why. Paying for college can be hard — but the School of Education wants to help. The Teacher Pledge program offers financial support to future Wisconsin teachers and is available to all domestic students who can receive federal aid via FAFSA. 

The School of Education pledges to pay the equivalent of in-state tuition and fees, testing, and licensing costs for all our teacher education students. In return, you pledge to work at a Wisconsin PK-12 school for three to four years after graduation. We want to empower you to make a difference.
