Students in the Razor’s Edge Shark Teach Scholars program are part of a four-year educational and leadership development program focused on utilizing what they learn in the classroom as future educators to aid in the continued transformation and vibrancy of the Nova Southeastern University community. Students in the program develop a sense of community and enthusiasm for academic excellence and bring others into the community around them.
Selected scholarship recipients will have the opportunity to collaborate with their peers through the role of tutor, supplemental instruction (SI) leader, writing consultant, or first year seminar peer leader. Students will also serve as Academic Ambassadors, working together to engage the NSU community in various academic support initiatives and programming, designed to elevate academic success across campus. Additionally, Shark Teach scholars will serve as academic and peer mentors through the student led organization We Achieve via Education (W.A.V.E.). As part of their academic support roles, students will be exposed to tutor training that follows College Reading and Learning Association (CRLA) certification standards, as well as supplemental instruction leader training that follows guidelines established by the UMKC – University of Missouri Kansas City International Center for Supplemental Instruction
Award Amount (Fall 2020): $24,000 ($20,000 tuition restricted, $3,500 campus housing, $500 meal plan)
