Teacher Scholars Academy Benefits
Thanks to generous donors, every Teacher Scholar receives up to 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 Academy is considered for all College of Education scholarships—even if they are not selected as a Scholar.
Experiential learning is a key part of the Teacher Scholar experience, including both service to the community and hands-on educational experiences.
As a Teacher Scholar, students will work closely with other high-performing Scholars by engaging in seminars, courses, and special projects specially designed for each cohort. Scholars will graduate with a strong network of professional peers.
