The California expansion marks the next chapter of our Teacher Residency to welcome, train, and prepare diverse educators statewide for the teaching profession.

The Marshall Teacher Residency partners with local credit unions to offer reasonable loan options to our Residents, as well as financial coaching and a personalized lending experience. Additional information about loan applications and deadlines will be available in Spring 2021.
The Marshall Teacher Residency offers need-based grants to selected Residents who have financed educational expenses with loan proceeds from our partner institutions. Needs-based grants are designed to help offset the monthly loan payment while Residents are enrolled in the program. Residents approved for a needs-based grant will receive $100 each month, in addition to the monthly living stipend.
You should plan to spend approximately $500 in fees prior to the start of the program and in the first month of the program. These include fees for required credentialing exams (CSET and CBEST), fingerprinting and background checks, a TB test, official transcripts, and other admissions and credentialing requirements. Additional fees may be incurred if you need to take any exams multiple times. To support you in planning ahead for your finances during the residency year, we have compiled a list of the expenses you can anticipate, including information about which expenses the Marshall Teacher Residency will cover for you.
