The Mississippi Teacher Corps is the most competitive alternate-route teaching program
in the country. The two-year program, designed for non-education majors, recruits
college graduates to teach in the Mississippi Delta and offers a host of benefits, including
teacher training and certification, a full scholarship for a master's degree in education, job
placement that includes full pay and benefits and, most importantly, the opportunity to
make a difference in the lives of students in one of the poorest areas of the country.
