We are committed to preparing teachers from a wide range of backgrounds to closely reflect the students in our partner schools’ communities.

NYU Steinhardt reviews all applications individually and comprehensively. Our priority is selecting candidates who possess not only basic requirements but a tenacious spirit and true commitment to addressing educational inequality, based on the belief that all students are capable of high achievement. Our district and charter network partners will also interview candidates to ensure a proper fit for mutual success.

When the application for the 2020 program opens, we encourage you to begin and complete the application steps below as soon as possible as each of our district and charter partners has a finite number of residency spots available in their schools. NYU Steinhardt faculty review applications and district and charter hiring managers extend offers to join the residency after each application deadline. The sooner your application materials are submitted, the earlier you will receive a final decision on admission into the NYU Teacher Residency. Communication around final admission into the residency for each application deadline for the next cohort will be updated below when the 2020 application opens.
