Educators play a critical role in our society, leaving a lasting, powerful impact on the many students they teach each year. Educators can impart lifelong lessons on their students and can inspire children and teens to follow all of their education dreams.
This scholarship seeks to support future K-12 educators so they can positively impact the next generation of students.
Any first-generation high school senior, undergraduate, or graduate student who is interested in becoming a K-12 teacher may apply for this scholarship.
