Fellows recruited to the AIUTP must first apply to the Graduate Teacher Program by February 1, 2013.    No expenses can be paid for students until they are admitted to the GTEP. Our office can assist students in applying to the PSU Graduate School and to the Graduate School of Education.

A payback to the U.S. Department of Education provision applies to each AIUTP recipient of financial assistance.  This can be done through service by teaching at a school serving a significant population of American Indian and/or Alaskan Native students for a period of time equal to the financial assistance received, or by repaying in cash all funding which was awarded to him or her.

 This award does not cover payment for parking permits, fees for required test re-takes, and printing fees beyond that provided each term by the University to each student.
