Established in July 2007 to benefit an education major who is a junior or higher in classification.
- Recipient must have declared an education major and be admitted to the teacher education program.
- Recipient must be a junior or higher in classification and have a cumulative Grade Point Average (GPA) of 3.0 or better to receive the scholarship for the first semester of award.
- Once appointed, a recipient may retain the scholarship until degree completion if he/she meets the 3.0 GPA criterion for retention, remains an education major and is making satisfactory progress toward teacher certification; however, no student will receive more than four semesters of scholarship support.
- Financial need will be a significant selection criterion.
