Funding Assistance

Through Arizona’s Master Teacher Program, funding assistance is available for Arizona teachers who wish to pursue National Board Certification. Funding assistance applications will be available when the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards (NBPTS) opens their 2015-2016 cycle of certification. Click here to connect with NBPTS for more information.

Teachers interested in partial funding assistance should have successfully completed a National Board Pre-Candidacy class within the past three years.

Pursuing National Board Certification is an experience like no other. While rigorous, it is one that brings great rewards.
