Educators play a significant role in the lives of their students, even well into adulthood. Many adults can still think of a specific teacher or professor that had a positive impact on them.
However, becoming a teacher isn’t easy—especially on the wallet. In order to support the next generation of teachers, it’s critical to supply future educators with the resources they need to pursue their degrees.
This scholarship seeks to ensure that students who want to become teachers have the necessary funding to do so by supporting female-identifying students who are studying education.
Any female-identifying high school senior, undergraduate, or graduate student who will be working on an education degree at an accredited university in Spring 2022 may apply for this scholarship.
To apply, tell us why you’re studying education, what you hope to do with your degree, and why education is important to you.
Why are you studying in the education field? What do you hope to utilize your education for in the future? Why is education important to you?
The application deadline is Apr 30, 2022. Winners will be announced on May 16, 2022.
The scholarship award is $1,000 per winner. It will be awarded to 1 winner every 1 year.
The winner will be publicly announced on May 16, 2022. Prior to the announcement date, we may contact finalists with additional questions about their application. We will work with donors to review all applications according to the scholarship criteria. Winners will be chosen based on the merit of their application.
Award checks will be sent to the financial aid office of the winner's academic institution or future academic institution in their name to be applied to their tuition, and in the name of their institution (depending on the school's requirements). If the award is for a qualified educational non-tuition expense, we will work with the winner directly to distribute the award and make sure it goes towards qualified expenses.
Before we award the scholarship, the winner will be required to confirm their academic enrollment status. Depending on the circumstances, verification of Student ID and/or their most recent transcript will be required.
