The Black Belt Teacher Corps Teach for Alabama scholarship program from the University of West Alabama helps junior and senior education majors in programs providing initial certification* complete their degree while qualifying for up to $10,000 in savings. The BBTC program is designed to supply designated Alabama schools with qualified teachers in every classroom.

Full scholarship recipients also complete a service project to make a difference in their communities and receive $1,000 as start-up funding for the project. Based on the scholarship awarded, students will complete service teaching in Alabama public schools in the Black Belt region, designated rural schools or in high-needs schools. Scholarship recipients also receive opportunities for additional training and personal development activities.
