Candidates must pass the state-required basic skills teaching licensure examination or demonstrate an exemption. We strongly encourage applicants to submit passing licensure exam scores or proof of exemption before the established WWTF program application deadlines (Round 1: October 23, 2016; Round 2: November 29, 2016; and Round 3: January 23, 2017).
Send your test scores to Betsy Kostendt ([email protected]). The Foundation does not have a 4-digit institution code and does not require an official score report directly from the testing agency. Instead, please submit a copy of your score report, either as an attachment via email, or through postal mail. Alternatively, you may submit a screen shot of your scores as they appear in an online account. (Be sure to include your full name and qualifying test score in the picture.) Those that are offered a Fellowship award may be required by the graduate school where they are admitted to send an official score report directly from the testing agency.
Candidates without licensure exam scores or proof of exemption on file may be considered for provisional admission. You must submit passing licensure exam scores or proof of exemption within 6 weeks of receiving a provisional admission offer.

Additional Information for applicants who have completed their undergraduate/graduate studies outside the United States:
Applicants who have completed their undergraduate/graduate studies outside the United States must also pass the appropriate state-required basic skills teaching licensure examination(s). However, if the undergraduate work was completed in a language other than English, we encourage applicants to satisfy the basic skills competency requirement by taking the SAT, ACT, or GRE. These assessment tests are available at hundreds of test centers across the United States.
