Governor's Teacher Fellowship Program

Spring GTF Fellow Update

All GTF Fellows who have not completed their GTF obligation are required to verify their status twice yearly: in fall of the new school year and again in the following spring. These updates provide GTF staff with current information on credential program enrollment or employment, and current contact information.

It is now time for the Fall 2013 update. Please read the directions first before proceeding!

In order to comply with the terms set forth by the Governor's Teaching Fellowship Program, verification of status is required on a periodic basis. Please print out, complete, and return the Section of the Verification Form that matches your current status. Please send these by mail to the address printed on each Section of the form. All status forms and documentation must be postmarked by 5:00 p.m. on November 8, 2013 We will not be accepting status update forms by email or by hand delivery. If we do not receive your form, your file will be forwarded for collection of the total amount received.

If your status or contact information changes at any time, it is your responsibility to notify the GTF office immediately.


Determine which form you need to send, using the following criteria:

Please note that we are no LONGER offering Special Deferment.
