Call Me MISTER Program
The Call Me MISTER (acronym for Mentors Instructing Students Toward Effective Role Models) program's mission is to increase the pool of available male teachers from a broader more diverse background particularly among the state's lowest performing elementary schools. Student participants are largely selected from among under-served, socio-economically disadvantaged and educationally at-risk communities.
As graduates, students are expected to have an impact by returning to critical need schools and communities to pursue their professional careers. It is expected a MISTER who completes the program and becomes certified to teach will assume a teaching position in a public school and teach one year for each year they received financial support from the Call Me MISTER program. The current MISTERS gain relevant leadership and mentorship training through well-designed academic and social activities.
Due to the gracious donation of a donor, the Call Me MISTER program has been awarded funds that further the mission and goals of the program at K-State. A portion of these funds is available to assist students in the form of scholarships.
Questions about the scholarship can be directed to Marcus Kidd, Assistant Director of Enrollment Management and Institutional Partnerships, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 785-532-5578.
