Attention: Male High School Seniors -'Call Me MISTER'

Several Black Colleges are looking for future black male teachers andwill send them to universities/colleges for 4 years FREE. The 'Call Me MISTER' program is an effort to address the criticalshortage of African American male teachers particularly among SouthCarolina 's lowest performing public schools. Program participants are selected from among under-served, socio-economically disadvantaged andeducationally at-risk communities.

The Call Me MISTER program combines the special strengths and resources of Clemson University with the individualized instructional programsoffered by four historically black colleges in South Carolina :Benedict College, Claflin University, Morris College and South Carolina State University. To provide even greateropportunity and access, students have the option of first attending oneof our two-year partner colleges before transferring to one of thefour-year institutions to complete their baccalaureate degree.In addition, the project has limited enrollment in the middle schoolMaster of Art in Teaching program.

The project provides: Tuition for admitted students pursuing approved programs of study atparticipating colleges.An academic support system to help assure their success. A cohort systemfor social and cultural support. Visit for more detailsand the online application or call (800) 640-2657.
