Future teachers have until the end of the month to apply for the Next Generation Hoosier Educators Scholarship. The third-year scholarship program provides a total of $30,000 for top students who commit to teaching in Indiana for five years after graduation.
“We know that having prepared teachers in the classroom is the key factor affecting students’ academic success,” said Indiana Commissioner for Higher Education Teresa Lubbers. “This scholarship is designed to attract Indiana’s best and brightest to the teaching profession while inspiring a new generation of Hoosier educators.”
Students must graduate in the highest 20 percent of their high school class or earn a top 20th percentile score on the SAT or ACT to be eligible. 200 Next Generation Hoosier Educators scholarships are awarded after teacher nominations, interview processes and academic achievement are evaluated. Over 500 students applied last year. Interested students have until November 30 to apply here. Finalists will be selected by January 4, 2019 and students who receive the scholarships will be notified by April 5, 2019.
