About the Campaign

Enhance an education student’s field experience by providing a scholarship for choosing to student teach in public or charter urban schools.

Successful teaching in low-income, urban, multicultural schools is different from teaching in suburban settings, and urban school districts across the nation are facing a continued shortage of qualified teachers willing and able to work in America’s most challenging classroom environments.

Help confront the challenge by offering a scholarship for Southeast education majors who choose to student teach in public or charter urban schools. Scholarships established will encourage Southeast students to explore opportunities to teach in educational settings with a different dynamic and diverse student population, preparing culturally competent, effective educators.
