Kansas Teacher Service Scholarship (#0001)
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.
The funding amount will be as follows:
- 12 + hours - $2,687/per semester
- 9 – 11 hours - $2,150/per semester
- 6 – 8 hours - $1,612/per semester
- 3 – 5 hours - $1,075/per semester
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.
Deadline - May 1
Renewals - Recipients receive a renewal agreement/promissory note, from the Board of Regents, which must be signed and returned. The federal application and the state application must be completed each year
