High achieving high school and college students who plan to be a teacher in Indiana for five years should apply.
(Indianapolis, Ind.) – The Next Generation Hoosier Educators Scholarship deadline is fast approaching.
The Indiana Commission for Higher Commission says high-achieving students in high school or college who are planning to teach in the State of Indiana for at least five years can apply for a $7,500 scholarship per year (up to $30,000 total).
“The Next Generation Hoosier Educators Scholarship is designed to help future educators fund their education and provide Indiana students with motivated, quality teachers,” said Indiana Commissioner for Higher Education Teresa Lubbers. “We look forward to the positive impact these educators will have on their students and on Indiana’s teacher pipeline.”
Students are encouraged to act quickly, as there are only 200 scholarships available.
To qualify for the scholarship, students must have either graduated in the top 20 percent of their high school class or earned a score in the top 20th percentile on the SAT (1220) or ACT (26). To continue earning the scholarship in college, students must earn a 3.0 GPA or higher and complete at least 30 credit hours per year.
Current college students who apply must be able to use the scholarship for at least two full academic years.
The deadline to apply is January 31. Applications can be found at www.ScholarTrack.IN.gov.
The Commission will review all applications and notify applicants of their scholarship status via email by March 19, 2021.
