Scholarships for Education Majors

Do you aspire to inspire future generations of learners? Before you can realize your worthy goal of becoming an educator, you will need to focus on your own education. And that means paying for college tuition and fees. While covering those expenses can be a challenge, it needn't be a barrier. The good news: There are many college scholarships for students committed to pursuing careers in the field of education, such as being a teacher or a school administrator. Foundations and other nonprofits fund many scholarships for education majors. Others are awarded by groups affiliated with state and local governments. Common requirements to be eligible for these scholarships include academic achievement – with minimum GPA requirements often ranging from 2.5 to 3.5 – and financial need. While some scholarships for education majors require students to study at a specific school, others are made available to students enrolled in any accredited institution, including 4-year schools, community colleges and graduate schools. Find the right scholarship for your situation below.
