Community Based Learning

Teaching Fellows Scholarship Program

Teaching Fellows at CBL

The Office of Community-Based Learning (CBL) at the Kremen School of Education and Human Development at California State University, Fresno facilitates an honors program for future teachers known as Teaching Fellows Scholarship Program. It is made possible through the partnership and sponsorship of the California Teaching Fellows Foundation (CTFF).

The program recruits students entering Fresno State University as Freshman and Sophomores who plan to teach. It provides an enriched cohort experience for Teaching Fellow Scholars as they complete degrees and credentials. Program participants are placed part-time as teaching assistants or tutors in surrounding school districts and receive financial assistance and personalized support through Community Based Learning. Enrichment opportunities include travel study and other events such as white-water rafting and in-state excursions to historical or educational sites. Twenty future teachers are selected for the scholarship program each year.

All Teaching Fellows participate in the Teaching Fellows Academy one Saturday per month to improve skills in assets-based youth development, social-emotional development, literacy for second-language learners, problem-based learning, and a variety of topics that enhance their current work in schools and their future skill sets as teachers.
