The Mississippi Excellence in Teaching Program (METP) is a collaboration between the University of Mississippi (Ole Miss) and Mississippi State University (MSU) to attract top-performing students to an innovative new teacher education program using one of the most valuable scholarships ever offered in the state.

Our goal is to train new English and mathematics teachers for Mississippi. Each METP fellow makes a five-year commitment to teach at a Mississippi public school after graduation.

Both institutions will accept 20 fellows (10 math and 10 English) for the fall term.
