Scholarships for Teaching Majors

Teaching is one of the most important professions a person can pursue. And if you are being called to become a teacher, there's good news: Many community foundations, government agencies and other organizations want to help you realize your goal by providing scholarships for teaching majors. Some of these scholarships are set aside for high school seniors who plan on majoring in teaching in college. Others are available to students already studying at accredited 2- and 4-year institutions. Additional requirements vary, from merit-based scholarships, to service agreements that require teaching commitments following graduation. Eligibility also may be tied to financial need. For some applications, students may be required to submit an essay, whereas others look at applicants who have demonstrated social service and civic responsibility. See the list of scholarships for teaching majors below to find the right one for your situation.
