Experiential learning is a key part of the Teacher Scholar experience, including both service to the community and hands-on educational experiences.
Thanks to generous donors, everyTeacher Scholar receives 30 credits of in-state tuition per year, as well as partial room and board, books and fees. In addition, every applicant to Teacher Scholars is considered for all College of Education scholarships- even if they are not selected as a Scholar.
The application for the next cohort will open in November. To apply to the Teacher Scholars, a candidate must be coming in as a freshman to the College of Education for the 2020-21 academic year. Candidates complete an online application to be considered for all College of Education scholarships, including the Teacher Scholars.
The top applicants will be invited to Interview Day at Roskens Hall. Twenty-four of those interviewed will be selected for the 2020 freshman cohort.
Applications, including letters of recommendation, must be submitted by February 1, 2020 for candidates to be considered for the 2020-2021 academic year.
