“Careers in Education Professions allowed me to explore education from a variety of lenses such as research, nonprofits, and school level. As a result, I became a Teach for America corps member."

The Careers in Education Professions selective program called EdPros, accepts applications from prospective candidates during the spring quarter of their 1st Year. Applications for this three-year program are reviewed and selections are announced before the start of the fall quarter. New cohort members are welcomed to the Careers in Education Professions community in the Fall of their 2nd Year and do not need to reapply to remain members in future years.

Application materials and requirements are announced via Handshake at the start of the spring quarter. Successful candidates demonstrate their willingness to explore the education space.

 EdPros benefits include:

  • Dedicated Advising for Internships and Career Planning
  • Support with Internship/ Full-time Application Materials; Letters of Recommendation/References
  • Informational Interviewing
  • Grad and Post-Grad Prep
  • Treks/ Conferences
  • Speaker Events/ Quarterly Meetings/Community Dinners
  • Build Community with fellow EdPros Members at UChicago, Amherst, and Grinnell

If you are not a 1st year student but are interested in learning about the program and possibly committing to it, please contact Bethany Pacheco ( to discuss your interests.
