I encourage any aspiring teacher to look into our program and learn more about how they can earn a scholarship to make a difference for students.
Washington, DC (Vocus) March 12, 2010
Thousands of scholarship dollars are available to those interested in helping to make a difference in Florida, Mississippi and South Carolina high-need schools and subjects, with an application deadline of March 19 fast approaching.
Funded by a U.S. Department of Education Transition to Teaching grant, the Teach & Inspire Scholarship Program provides accepted participants with a full scholarship and materials needed to become certified teachers through the ABCTE program. Once ABCTE certification is obtained, candidates are eligible for an additional $1,000 stipend for completing classroom observations, plus other financial incentives.
Participants must make a three-year commitment to teach their subject in a high-need school in Florida, Mississippi or South Carolina. Applicants must hold a bachelor’s degree, have the ability to work independently and possess a strong desire to make a positive impact on students.
“We’re looking for highly motivated individuals with a bachelor’s degree, who are excited about making a difference in high-need schools and subjects throughout the state. Though we have found many qualified and passionate individuals to join our program, each time we hold recruitment sessions we have scholarship dollars that go unused because we still cannot find enough great candidates,” explains Teach & Inspire Scholarship Program Manager Najla Husseini. “I encourage any aspiring teacher to look into our program and learn more about how they can earn a scholarship to make a difference for students.”
Interested individuals can find more information at abcte.org/inspire, can apply online for the scholarship or may call 877-669-2228 with any questions. The application deadline is Friday, March 19.
