Description of Fund
The Teacher Quality Partnership (TQP) Grants Program provides $100 million in competitive grants to improve the quality of new teachers by creating partnerships among IHEs, high-need local educational agencies (LEAs) their high-need schools, and/or high-need early childhood education (ECE) program. These partnerships would create model teacher preparation programs at the pre-baccalaureate level through the implementation of specific reforms of the IHE’s existing teacher preparation programs, and/or model teaching residency programs for individuals with strong academic and/or professional backgrounds but without teaching experience. The TQP Grants Program may also support school leadership programs to train superintendents, principals, ECE program directors, and other school leaders in high-need or rural LEAs.

An eligible applicant must be an “eligible partnership” as defined in section 200(6) of the HEA.
