Fall 2017 MTES Application (Delayed Opening)

In order to better serve our current Scholars, Graduates, Primary Contacts, Board of Directors and MTES applicants, FFMT is changing its database management system.  This change has caused a delay in the scheduled opening of the Minority Teacher Education Scholarship (MTES) application.  The application was scheduled to open on May 15th, but we anticipate the application now opening on June 16th, extending the closure time until August 2nd.  Should this date change, we will update this announcement accordingly.  Do not be alarmed by this delay as we will give you these days on the back end to assure that you have ample time to complete the application.  In the meantime, FFMT recommends that you draft your essay at this time and begin requesting your official transcripts.   The essay will be required to complete the application as it must be uploaded when you're completing the application.  Your official transcripts must be submitted to FFMT headquarters.  The address can be found below.  If you fail to submit the essay and your official transcripts, your application will be considered incomplete and automatically denied.

Essay Topic:
Discuss how your life experiences have impacted you to go into the field of education. (100 - 300 words)
