Remember your favorite teacher? The one who made a difference? The one who inspired? If that’s the kind of teacher you aspire to be, Indiana has a scholarship for you!

The Next Generation Teacher Scholarship was created to help the next generation of Hoosier teachers pay for college. The State of Indiana will provide 200 scholarships each year to high-achieving high school and college students interested in pursuing a career in education. The scholarship pays $7,500 per year for up to four years. In exchange, students agree to teach for five years at an eligible Indiana school or repay the corresponding, prorated amount of the scholarship.

The application for the 2018-19 academic year will be available beginning September 1, 2017 and will close on November 30, 2017.
