Teacher Education Scholarship Program

Scholarship Description

The Teacher Education Scholarship Program is open to full-time undergraduate students who are U.S. citizens.  Students must be enrolled in a program of study at one of Virginia’s five Space Grant colleges (College of William and Mary, Hampton University, Old Dominion University, University of Virginia and Virginia Tech) when they actually receive the award.  Since this award is intended to encourage students to enter teaching, students may also apply during their senior year in high school or in their sophomore year in a community college.  The award is contingent on their matriculation at a Space Grant college and entrance into a teacher certification program.  Students currently enrolled in a Space Grant college can apply when they declare their intent to enter the teacher certification program.  Those students enrolled in a career transition program leading to a degree in education are also eligible to apply.  Students eligible for support must be in a track that would qualify them to teach in a pre-college setting.  Priority will be given to those majoring in technology education, mathematics or earth/space/environmental science.  Successful scholarship recipients should have grade point averages of at least 3.0 on a 4.0 scale.  Since an important purpose of this program is to increase the participation of underrepresented groups in science, math and technology education, the VSGC especially encourages applications from these students.
