Graduate Scholarship for Teachers

Submission Deadline: 2017-03-18
Scholarship Award: $5,000

Teachers are both underpaid and overworked in the United States. In recognition of the contributions they make and the financial challenges they face, SR Education Group is awarding $20,000 in annual scholarships for teachers pursuing graduate degrees. Scholarships will be awarded 4 times a year in the amount of $5,000.

To provide our judges with a true understanding of each applicant, he or she must answer two open-ended, personal, and thought-provoking questions. The students whose responses are the most persuasive, compelling, and well-written, as judged by our panel, will be considered finalists.
