Teach For America is the national corps of recent college graduates who commit two years to teach in underserved public schools. Corps members are hired by the school districts where they work as first-year teachers and receive additional salary as part of the federal AmeriCorps program. The Amgen Fellowship is given annually to 50 incoming math, science and engineering majors who best exemplify perseverance, critical thinking, the ability to motivate others and a commitment to ending educational inequity.
