*Relay GSE is an AmeriCorps partner. We strongly encourage you to join the AmeriCorps program if you're eligible, as it aligns with Relay’s commitment to service and the work you do daily as a teacher. Participating students earn a Segal AmeriCorps Education Award upon completion of a full-service term that may be applied to reduce the out-of-pocket cost of tuition. Failure to participate in the AmeriCorps program if you’re eligible means that you are fully aware that Relay will charge you the deferred tuition amount equivalent to the AmeriCorps Segal Education Award and you will be responsible for paying that amount in full.

TEACH Houston

Our partner, TEACH Houston, is a program that provides free support to anyone who’s thinking about becoming a teacher. When you sign up, you get perks like 1-on-1 coaching, up to $100 back in fee reimbursements (including certification exam costs) and a chance to win a regional $1,000 scholarship.

To capitalize on the application fee reimbursement, you just have to create a TEACH Houston account here before you apply to Relay. Once you have subscribed to TEACH Houston and applied to Relay, you can submit your application fee reimbursement and apply for the TEACH Houston scholarship!
