Please review the official application notice for pre-application and application requirements, application submission information, performance measures, priorities and program contact information.Purpose of Program:
The Teacher Quality Partnership (TQP) Grant Program aims to increase student achievement by improving the quality of new prospective teachers by enhancing the preparation of prospective teachers and the professional development activities for current teachers; holding teacher preparation programs at institutions of higher education (IHEs) accountable for preparing highly qualified teachers; and recruiting effective individuals, including minorities and individuals from other occupations, into the teaching force.

Background:
The TQP Grant Program supports partnerships among (i) IHEs, (ii) high-need local educational agencies (LEAs), and (iii) high-need schools served by such LEAs or high-need early childhood education (ECE) programs.

These partnerships must implement (a) teacher preparation programs at the pre-baccalaureate or ``fifth-year'' level that include specific reforms in IHEs' existing teacher preparation programs; (b) teacher residency programs for individuals with strong academic or professional backgrounds but without teaching experience; or (c) both.

In this competition, we are especially interested in supporting partnership programs that prepare teachers to teach subjects in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).

In his 2011 State of the Union address, the President called for a new effort to prepare 100,000 STEM teachers over the next decade with strong teaching skills and deep content knowledge.

The President's goal has been incorporated into an Administration-wide priority, as part of the both the Federal STEM Education 5-Year Strategic Plan 1 released in May 2013 and as a Cross Agency Priority Goal 2 announced earlier this year.

In addition, answering the President's call to action, nearly 200 organizations have formed a coalition called 100Kin10, all committed to the goal of increasing the supply of excellent STEM teachers; hiring, developing, and retaining excellent STEM teachers; and building the 100Kin10 movement.Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance (CFDA) Number:
