Cortlands Urban Recruitment of Educators (C.U.R.E.) Scholarships

Scholarship Description

* Scholarship Type: Merit-based but in order to receive funding, recipients are required to file a FAFSA. PELL and TAP awards are figured into the equation of the award amount which funds recipients costs for tuition, books, room and board. * Eligibility Criteria: Admitted freshmen and continuing students majoring in areas of education who demonstrate high academic achievement and are citizens or permanent residents of the United States. Applicants who are transfer or continuing students must be admitted to a major that leads to teacher certification or, if a current freshman, be listed as waiting in a major that leads to teacher certification. A scholarship award for transfer or continuing students is contingent upon available space and spring semester grades reflecting an overall GPA that meets or exceeds the minimum requirement for student teaching in their major. * First Priority - given to individuals from groups who have been historically underrepresented or underserved in the teaching profession and who demonstrate a commitment to teach in high-need urban schools. For the purposes of C.U.R.E., these groups include, but are not limited to, African American, Hispanic, Native American or Alaskan Native individuals or individuals from an economically disadvantaged background. * Second Priority - given to any other individuals from groups not historically underrepresented in the teaching profession who demonstrate a commitment to teach in high-need urban schools. * Award: Varies. Annual award helps to defray college costs above and beyond state and federal aid the student receives. * Continuation of Funding: Based on student remaining committed to C.U.R.E Program and satisfactory academic progress in a major leading to teacher certification. * Availability: Contingent upon annual availability of funds. Number given varies. * Additional Application Material: Candidates must fill out a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) available from the Financial Aid Office.  Giving limited to Cortland, NY.
