Educators Rising Scholarship

This is a $500 scholarship established to encourage and support high school students pursuing a degree in education. Teaching is a rewarding career in many ways. With the number of candidates declining for careers in education, Educators Rising is here to offer support to those just beginning the journey. 

Eligibility: Applicants must be Missouri high school seniors planning to attend a college with an education or pre-education program to pursue a career in teaching, and a member of Educators Rising. Applicants must be in the top 20 percent of their class, and if 18, be a registered voter.

Application Deadline: Jan. 31 (postmarked by Jan. 24)
