We plan to continuously grow this scholarship in the future and serve other careers that are under-compensated relative to the value they add to the community

SR Education Group, an education research publisher, just announced a brand new Graduate School Scholarship for Teachers. The scholarship is open to all US teachers currently attending or accepted into graduate school. All SR Education Group scholarships are need-based and will be awarded to the applicant who shows the most financial need. Applications are due on January 5, 2016, and a winner will be announced on January 13, 2016.

Since 2004, SR Education Group has given away over $100,000 in scholarships. The previous scholarships varied from categories like community college and military to women’s and single parent. This is the first time SR Education Group has ever offered a graduate school scholarship for teachers. The $5,000 reward is the largest scholarship ever offered by the company and will be offered once a quarter. Two $2,500 community college scholarships are also currently being offered.

“Teachers are ridiculously underpaid and overworked in this country. I don’t know a single person who became a teacher to make lots of money. One way that teachers can earn more is by obtaining a graduate degree but unfortunately, most of them leave graduate school with a lot of debt,” explained Sung Rhee, CEO of SR Education Group. “We wanted to take a small first step with this scholarship. We plan to continuously grow this scholarship in the future and serve other careers that are under-compensated relative to the value they add to the community.”

All applications for this need-based Graduate School Scholarship for Teachers must be received by January 5, 2016. A winner will be selected and notified via private message. SR Education Group will then announce the winner on January 13th via Twitter and Facebook.
