Frances scholarship winner

I am grateful to have the opportunity to continue my education to build a brighter future for myself and my daughter.

SR Education Group has just announced the winner of its Graduate Scholarship for Teachers. Frances Resuta was selected to receive $5,000 toward her education at the College of Staten Island, one of the senior colleges within the City University of New York system. She is currently working as a teacher and pursuing a Master’s in Teaching of English to Speakers of Other Languages. The scholarship committee reviewed applications from many deserving graduate students, and will also be awarding 5 outstanding finalists $100.

Resuta’s story stood out due to incredible motivation and dedication. SR Education Group is excited to support her and her honorable goals, including providing for her family and helping her students recognize their full potential. Resuta would like to obtain a Master’s in Teaching of English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) so that she will be better equipped to help her students learn English while continuing to foster their native language. As a single mother and full-time teacher, the cost of graduate school has not been an easy burden. In her application materials, Resuta made it clear that she is committed to continuing her education in order to positively affect the lives of the students she interacts with.

After learning that she had won the Graduate Scholarship for Teachers, Resuta said, "I am honored to receive this scholarship! The past few years have been hard financially and emotionally for my family and I am grateful to have the opportunity to continue my education to build a brighter future for myself and my daughter. Thank you SR Education Group!"

Five applicants with compelling education and career goals were selected as finalists and will each receive $100: Jacinda Greco of Suny Empire State College, Cris Goldman of California Lutheran University, Mary Reed of the University of San Diego, Krystal Leddy of Capella University, and Amanda Thorpe of Johns Hopkins University. The deadline for the next round of SR Education Group’s Graduate Scholarship for Teachers is March 18, 2017.
