Description: Knowing that there is an increased need to employ qualified teachers in hard-to-fill disciplines and underserved geographic areas of the state, this program was enacted to increase the number of licensed and fully endorsed teachers in the State of Kansas.
First priority in awarding goes to Junior and Senior level college students (Freshmen rarely receive this award) and currently licensed teachers who meet the outlined criteria and provide an official copy of all academic transcripts and at least one academic, or employment-related (current teachers only), letter of recommendation. This is a merit-based scholarship. The average GPA of recipients has been 3.50. The number of designees is dependent on state funding levels.
