Applicant must be in good standing and must have been admitted, or have applied for fall admission, to the Teacher Education Program. Applicant must be majoring in secondary English education and must have a minimum 3.0 GPA. Applicant must have financial need based on the FAFSA. This award will be paid out in Fall 2022.
