Scholarships for Elementary Education Majors

Elementary school teachers help lay the educational foundation for students from kindergarten to eighth grade. But before they can do that important job, they need to spend several years on their own educations. And there are many scholarships for elementary education majors to help. Many of these scholarships are offered by local community organizations across the U.S., such as the Blackford County Community Foundation in Indiana. Others are provided by national organizations, like the American Association of University Women. To be eligible, applicants often must attain a specified minimum GPA. Letters of recommendation and a personal essay outlining ones reasons for pursuing a career in elementary education also may be required. If you're looking for the right elementary education scholarship, the list below is a great place to start.
