Dr. Michael Edmondson Science Education Endowed Scholarship
Students must be enrolled in a science education degree plan (biology, chemistry or earth & spaces sciences) at CSU, live in the Chattahoochee Valley region, and maintain at least a 2.5 GPA.
You can learn about National Science Foundation-funded scholarships for UTeach students on our CM STEM page.
To be eligible for these $15,000 scholarships, you must be a junior or senior in a UTeach program of study.
The Teacher Education Assistance for College and Higher Education (TEACH) Grant provides up to $4,000 per year to full-time undergraduate or graduate students enrolled in eligible CSU programs of study. Students must agree to serve four academic years as a full-time teacher in a high-need field at an eligible school. To qualify for a TEACH Grant, students must meet and maintain academic requirements of a 3.25 GPA or score above the 75th percentile on a national college admissions test. Failure to complete the service obligation will result in the TEACH Grant funds converting to a Federal Direct Unsubsidized Stafford Loan with interest charged from the date the grant was disbursed.
Other Future Teacher Scholarships
Knowles Science Teaching Foundation
The Knowles Science Teaching Foundation was created by Janet H. and C. Harry Knowles in 1999 to cultivate and support exemplary science and mathematics high school teachers and develop the next generation of leaders in education. The Knowles Teaching Fellowship is an intensive and cohesive, five-year program that supports early-career, high school mathematics and science teachers in their efforts to develop teaching expertise and lead from the classroom.
Georgia Intern Fellowships for Teachers
Founded in 1991 as a program of the Georgia Institute of Technology's CEISMC, GIFT provides paid summer STEM internships in industry workplaces and university laboratories for K-12 science, mathematics, and technology teachers. Teachers spend 4 to 7 weeks experiencing first-hand how industrial scientists and researchers approach problems, design experiments, interpret data, communicate findings, and develop and implement workplace solutions.
