The Maestros grant program strives to grow the teacher education pipeline at Texas State University.  

Maestros is designed to promote student completion of education and teacher certification programs in a timely manner. We hope to improve transfer rates from community colleges to the education and teacher certification programs at Texas State and improve student achievement and academic recovery. A team of student success professionals is committed to enhancing education and teacher certification degree completion.

Maestros also improves pre-service teacher development of "transferable skills" desired by employers and cultural fluency enhancing their transition to Texas’ diverse classrooms.
