IUE Scholars

  • IUE Scholars are undergraduate students who are passionate about social justice and urban education.
  • IUE Scholars apply for paid or volunteer work with the Institute for Urban Education on various projects that support the mission of the IUE. Scholars don’t have to be education majors, but should have a strong interest in urban education and closing the opportunity gap for diverse groups of students. Scholars have the potential to impact community, school, and program related projects.
  • If undergraduate scholars decide to pursue a career in education, they can join the IUE student teaching/internship track, which will provide support throughout the scholars education coursework and eventual student teaching or internship.
