Teaching Scholarships and Grants

If you want to be a teacher, you’re choosing a solid career. The country is in dire need of teachers of all types. Thus, you can be sure to have a career that is somewhat secure. And of course, who doesn’t want to help guide the youth of America?

This is one of the most honorable professionals out there. Enrolling for and paying for school is easier said than done. Attending college can be quite pricey. Teaching degrees cost thousands and thousands of dollars.

This is why it is so important to really find solid scholarships and grants. There are funds out there. You just need to know where to look. The following are some great resources to use when looking for scholarships and grants.

The Federal Government

One of the best places to turn for teaching scholarships and grants is actually the federal government. Periodically, the federal government puts aside a certain amount of money for its citizens. The idea is that the country can only succeed if its people can succeed. Thus, these funds are then granted to people who show that they are financially in need of them.

One of the most famous and commonly used federal grants is the Pell Grant. Around since 1972, this grant is for people who can prove they are from low-income families and need additional support to return to school. The amount of the federal government’s scholarships and grants depends on the year. Still, such funding resources as the Pell Grant remain an important tool for people who want to fund and earn their teaching degree.

State Opportunities

Individual states often have great teaching scholarships and grants. Some of these scholarships and grants may be specifically related to education and to teaching whereas others may be linked to being from low-income families or minorities. Think about how you do or do not relate to the funding requirements and start applying as early on as possible.

You never know what your home state has to offer you. Of course, remember that you need to prove that you are a legal resident of this state. Thus, be sure to get the proper documents in order.

Need-Based Scholarships and Grants

If you come from a low-income family, you may qualify for need-based scholarships and grants. This can make paying for school that much more possible. Such funding options come from a variety of places: everywhere from local churches to big name corporations may offer such funding. Thus, it is important to do your research to see if you or your parents’ income meet the requirements for such grants and scholarships. If you qualify, this could help you obtain your teaching degree and certification!

Ethnicity-Related Scholarships and Grants

Historically, the United States was a place for immigrants. People came here to rid themselves of persecution they faced in their home countries. Thus, the country is full of people of many types of ethnicities, races, and backgrounds.

Not every minority in the United States has been afford the same opportunities. Thus, there are many scholarships and grants focused on evening the gap. If you are a minority and want to pursue a teaching degree, these funding options can really make all the difference. Take the time to really investigate this so you can secure the funding you need to enroll and finish school.

Women-Focused Scholarships and Grants

Another group that may find some great teaching scholarships and grants is women. After all, in the not so distant history, women were earning far less than men for the same job.

These funds are meant to close that gap and ensure that women have the funds for school. You can find women-focused teaching scholarships and grants from women advocacy groups and from corporations and non-profit organizations around the world.

First Generation College Students

If you are the first person in your family to attend college, then you may qualify for some stellar scholarships and grants. People don’t realize how tough it can be to the first in a family to go through this process. You may have no idea what a FAFSA form, and your family may not have the means to financially contribute to your education.

Military-Related Scholarships and Grants

People who have or are currently serving in the United States military may be eligible for important college grants and scholarships. This is how various military branches show their thanks to their soldiers and officers. Additionally, there are many teaching scholarships and grants available for the children and spouses of active and inactive soldiers.

You can find out about such funding options by contacting the specific military branch and for searching for military-related teaching scholarships and grants from non-profits and groups around the world.

Ask Teachers

Another way to find some stellar teaching scholarships and grants is to ask people who have experience looking for such funding: teachers. Sit down with teachers and ask them about their experiences with different funding sources. Firsthand knowledge is the best type of resource when looking for teaching scholarships and grants.

Ask about everything from how the application process worked to how funds were distributed and whether they were renewable. Some funds will only cover a single year of school whereas others will cover the full degree or program. Your teachers may also have some valuable suggestions about teaching scholarships and grants that you haven’t yet heard about.

Service for Money Programs

There’s no question that today’s world needs hard working, positive, and empowering teachers. Thus, there are many service for scholarships and grants programs. Basically, you have to commit to teaching in a in-need communities or schools for a set amount of time in exchange for funding. This is beneficial to both you and to the in-need schools.

After all, you need the money to continue your education and earn your necessary degrees and credentials, and the schools need qualified, dedicated, and intelligent teachers. This is also a great bet for people who want to give back to impoverished areas, are dedicated to teaching and want experience, and for those who want to see the world.

Know Why You Want to Teach

The above funding options for would-be teachers are competitive. After all, there are many people who want to receive funds for school. Thus, you need to be clear with yourself about why you want to teach.

This will make it easier for you to fill out applications, respond to questions, and write essays. The more specific you are about the teaching profession and why it is for you, the more focused and responsible you will look.

Online and Paper Applications

If you want to find teaching scholarships and grants, you need to head online. Basic Internet searches will lead you to non-profit, corporation, and private organizations that offer such funds.

Some of these groups will have online applications for you to complete whereas others will request paper applications. Always receive confirmation that your application has been received. You can save emails, confirmation numbers, and include a self-enclosed-stamped envelope with your application materials.

Be Thorough

Leave no rock unturned when it comes to finding money for school. You never know which organization will grant you the funds you need to continue your education. Make sure that you fully apply to each scholarship or fund. Ask a loved one to double-check your work.

You want to answer any and all questions and include all necessary documentation to secure this application is read and considered. Having a loved one look over your work will ensure that you submit error free applications. A single error may make you look less professional. This is why it is important to have fresh eyes review your work.

Gather Together Important Documents

Most teaching scholarships and grants will ask for the same documents. Thus, it is important to gather together such items and make copies, if possible. For example, universally requested documents include proof of residency, birth certificates, tax forms, and proof of income and enrollment in school. Having these items organized before you begin applying for teaching scholarships and grants will make the process easier to manage.

If you are willing to do your research and really explore your options, you will no doubt be able to find some secure funding options for school. There are many teaching scholarships and grants out there.

You just need to look anywhere and everywhere to fund funding. You never know which funds you will be approved for. With some careful research and preparation, you can find the necessary scholarships and grants to make your teaching goals a reality.

    Hello, my name is Maria Hanes and I live in Kilgore, TX. I am a 38 year old Hispanic (Mexican) mother of three children. I am a Bilingual Teachers’ Aide at Sabine Middle School in Gladewater, TX. I was a substitute teacher for Sabine ISD (Elementary, Middle School, & High School) for almost a year before the full-time bilingual teachers aide position was offered to me. Sabine ISD is aware that I am in the process of obtaining my teachers certification for a Generalists EC-6 through ITeachTexas.com. I just have to take & pass the test; then I have to either complete 6-weeks student teaching or have 1 year in a teaching position by June 2012. I’m praying that once I pass the test & complete the program; Sabine ISD will have a teaching position available for me. Unfortunately; the last couple of years have been very difficult for me (financially & with my marriage). I am currently going through a divorce. The only way I would be able to complete my program will be to enroll in a 6-week student teaching program in the next few months. And of course that means I have to pay for the 6-week student teaching and not get paid during that time. As I mentioned, I am going through a divorce & will be supporting 3 kids (19 yr old–in college, 18 yr old–high school senior, & 9 yr old). So the Big Problem is that there is no way I will be able to afford the 6-week student teaching program & lose my teachers’ aide salary (which is not much at all) for 6 weeks. I would really appreciate any help to be able to pay for my test and the 6-week student teaching program; so that I may accomplish my dream of becoming a Bilingual Teacher in the state of Texas.
    I know that this is my calling! I’m sure you may hear that all the time but I can assure you that I want this with all my heart. I love working with kids and knowing that I am helping them in their education. And believe me I gave up and lost a lot in order for me to accomplish my dream. I had a great paying job & position, but that did not matter to me. I felt like once I left the business field I was never good enough for my husband, which I’m sure my current personal situation tells you something. But my children & family believe in me and know I want this with all my heart. And as long as my kids support me and my faith in myself…I know I will be the Best Teacher I can Be to every student that crosses my path.
    I’m sure you didn’t expect a book in the comment section; but I don’t know how else to say it without my desire for my teaching career to show. So please any help to pay for my tests, my 6-week student teaching program, and my unpaid school loans will be Greatly Appreciated. I pray that I will be able to teach the fall of 2012. Thank you for your time and help.
    Sincerely, Maria Hanes (Kilgore, TX)

    Hi, my name is Courtney. I will be graduating from High School in May of this year. Since I was 4 years old I have always wanted to be a teacher. For the past 3 years, I have had the pleasure of teaching toddlers thur middle school children gymnastics, this has been a great experience for me, this experience has made me more excited to actually be in a classroom teaching.
    I am from a single parent home. My mom has always worked two jobs to support me. For the past two years she has worked one full time job, just to spend more time with me. It’s been tough at times, but we made it though. Now it’s almost time for College, and once again mom is searching for a second job, just for me.
    Receiving a grant would be greatly appreciated, and would diffinately take a lot of pressure off my mom.

    Hi my name is Mackenzie Verley and I am a student at St. Cloud Technical and Community College. I am going to school for Early Childhood Special Education. I am in real need of a grant. This grant will help me to continue my educational goals in helping children get the attention and devotion they need and deserve. I have been volunteering in a early childhood/special education school setting for the past two years now, and I don’t want to do anything else with my life, but work with these children everyday. I live on my own, and I work as much as possible, but with school it’s hard to always get the hours in that I need. My parents have never been able to afford to help me out with anything, which, from my point of view, they shouldn’t have to because I am an adult, but becoming an educator and working with children has been my dream for as long as I can remember, I would really appreciate any help I can get.

    Thank you for your time.

    My name is Caitlin Huff and i am from the United States. My dream is to become a elementary or Middle school History teacher. The reason i want to become a teacher is because i can remember when i was in school the teachers did not take time to individually teach each student and did not take time to help every student overcome their academic problems. I knew each student understood ways of being taught differently (conversations with friends) and i want to do that. I want to take time to help each and every student completely understand the subject and answer any questions they may have. Also, they need to feel comfortable in class and not be afraid to ask/answer questions. Children in school should be rewarded for earning high grades. They should be organized, and well-prepared when they come to class. If i was a teacher my students would know to be prepared for class i would test them on it. Make sure they understand you have to be prepared not only for school reasons but life. That is what school is about. To be prepared for life and its many hardships. If you are not prepared you will undergo very many hardships. I think that i would have great teaching skills and ways. It is a Passion of mine to be a teacher and especially history which is a subject i strive in. I always loved history and would like students to fall in love with history also. You have to make learning fun and exciting with challanges and proper documeting. You should have infromation carefully organized so if you need it you can go straight to it. A teacher should have papers graded on the date they say they will be or sooner. If the tests were on Monday they WILL be graded by friday. Another great tool to being a teacher i believe is being kind. Greet you students and welcome them. I think they all should get indivdual attention. ALso, keep the groups spread out across the room. So there is no talking during class. Only full attention to the teacher(s). Although i am only completeing my 10th grade courses and i am currently home-schooled i wish to go to college and earn a Bachelor’s Degree. I have strong verbal and written communication skills, i am also comfortable in front of groups, along with passion for being creative and helping students as much as possible. I easily and quickly understand matters when taught to me. I think i can undergo the four years it takes to get a Bachelor’s Degree along with the other requirements that must be meet to be a certified teacher. I think student would enjoy my ways of teaching and kindness and passion from not only teaching students and encouraging them to fulfill their dreams but to learn from the students as well. I have experience with computers. I should be graduated from high-school in under a year. Then, i will be seeking scholarships or grants to help me finacially fulfill my dreams of being a teacher. I currently live at home and the household of 3 does not recieve much income. very low income indeed. I have hope that i will find a scholarship or grant that will help me pay for college. Until then i will be working very hard to graduate. Thanks Caitlin Huff. U.S. (virginia)

    my name is Angelica Brown and I am currently 22 years old. Right now I am in school for early childhood education. As a child I did not have the proper guidance with my parents, from those experiences I decided to be a teacher. If I can make a difference in children’s lives I know it will be rewarding not only to the students but to me as well. My only problem is that right now I struggle financially. Working minimum wage jobs to afford a car to get to school is hard enough. Along with gas prices and the cost for food and living etc is very stressful. Although I contemplated dropping out of school to work more I can’t give up. I need to be an example to other children/young people,that if you don’t give up you can attain success.

    My name is Alice Wise, and I’m a sophmore at the University of South Alabama. I have chosen the career of being a high school math teacher, because of the possibilities I can have effecting the future. I understand that through inspiration, affection, and determination I can help build new generations of engineers, scientists, accountants, and many other math labored jobs. Even everyday people need math to balance a budget, so I understand that my actions are not just for the mathematically inclined, so I’m happy to help all sorts. Despite government education’s standard, I know that I can make a difference. As a 22 year old, I’m bound and determined to reach my goal as a high school math teacher, but financially, I’m set back. I would love to focus on school, but working and paying bills are a large priority of my life. I work two jobs, but still manage to make good grades. I believe in working for what you want to earn, so I’m happy to work my two jobs, but its summation of income does not add up to enough to pay for even three courses. A scholarship would be an amazing gift that I would be forever greatful for. I understand and appreciate the support that goes into it, and would put its value to great use. Ultimately, a scholarship for me is a donation to your future and your families future.

    Greeting to All,

    My passion is Education! I enjoy the process of being a positive influence in the lives of scholars I have been attending colleges for the past several years. I earned a degree Master of Arts in Elementary Education. I am currently enrolled in a Doctorate Program with Cappella University.

    My employment experiences have been Teacher in preschool, Director of a Daycare, Head Start teacher, Head Start Administrator. I am currently employed with an Elementary school as a teacher.

    It has been a process of several years obtaining this level of education, because I have been working while going to school and being a mom. My children are grown and I am at the finale of my education. Yes, teachers inspire dreamers to dream, individuals in all fields of occupations have been touched by a teacher. Yet, I am at a stage of posturing because being a teacher, while it has it rewards of observing how I influence lives; it is a minimum base pay.

    I have incurred $60,000 in debt from attending college. Now, I need favor with individuals who will be gracious to assist me with going to four colloquial which are part of the process for writing my dissertation.

    Thank you for your consideration,

    Hi my name is Charnissa Harris. I have been an assistant teacher for 15 years now. I am persuing my degree in education. However I cannot afford to pay out of pocket which is causing me to not become a teacher. I love working with our young children because they really need our support. Teaching is my passion and life. So please help me to achieve my dream by finishing school so that I can become an aspiring teacher. Your scholarship will really make it a blessing to have.

    Hello there and Good Evening,
    My name is Michelle Duhe and I am currently attending Southeastern Louisiana University. I am in Education Majoring in Grades 1-5 and I would be utterly grateful and appreciative if I were given this scholarship. Considering I am a full time student and working a part time job it is very hard to pay for my schooling and also do well in the classroom. I am barely making it paycheck to paycheck. With this scholarship, that will make me so much closer to my dream at inspiring children to learn and be more knowledgeable which will make the world a better place! I have always wanted to by a teacher and be an idol for my students. I want to make the children of our society have a better, bigger, and brighter future for themselves. With that being said, once again, I would truly be forever grateful if I were to receive this wonderful scholarship. It would most certainly be a blessing!!
    Thank you for your time and consideration,
    Michelle Duhe

    I am in need of your assistance to finish my Bachelor’s Degree in Education. I recently became a widow & I am trying to keep the promise of finishing school to myself as well as my husband. I do not have the money ($5000) for the books & classes that I need to take in order for me to complete my education. I am in desperate need for funds since it has to be paid to hold a seat for me this coming spring. I do not make much money being a Teacher Assist in Texas. I have never asked anyone for anything. I am not too proud to ask for assistance.

    I need for you to know that I am not asking for a hand out, but a hand up to assist me in my plight. I would be very grateful for anything that you can do to assist me with my dilemma. Also, I will be the first in my family to hold a degree. Thank you for anything that you can offer me. I hold to you “Sincere Gratification” for your time & efforts.

    My name is Ana Maria Merkel. I’m a single mother of three. Recently divorced, had not worked for fifteen years. I hold a BS in Electrical Engineering from Purdue University, as well as ten semesters of Electrical Engineering from Venezuela, where I grew up. I’m from Spain, and was married to an American veteran for 24 years, and have been an American citizen since 1999. I used to teach college and high school classes in Venezuela, and teaching is my passion. I finally got a job as a Middle School Spanish teacher at a charter school in South Florida. The most rewarding part of my job is helping minority children who have different kinds of personal problems and need someone they trust to give them a hand a guide them. In order to get my certification and not only continue my new career, but also be able to support my children, I need to take classes and exams, which are out of my reach financially. I was hoping there is some kind of help for individuals in my situation who are trying to switch their career path to become teachers.
    If you can help me in any way, my children and I would be eternally grateful.

    My name is Jamie Boyer,I’m a full time student and I work a 40 hour banking job, I attend night classes so I am able to be at work during the day, some semesters I would have to take an afternoon class, I would have to take that during my lunch break at work. I currently attend Cisco College and I will be transferring to McMurry University in the Fall of 2017. It is a private college and the reason i’m going to McMurry is because Cisco and McMurry have an agreement between one another where I am able to get 80% of my classes done at Cisco and have only 20% left with McMurry. The cost for each hour between the school is great, one year at McMurry cost $26,000.00 and I would be attending there for one year. I would really appreciate this grant because it would help me not stress about my federal loans i’m going to have to pay back. I will be certified in elementary k-5, I really enjoy that type of age groups, because they are still in their growth stages and I hope one day as a teacher I will be able to change quite a few of my students lives and hope they remember me for years to come. I want to impact them in some sort of way that will change their lives forever and for the better. I have 4 nieces and 4 nephews and they make me want to pursue teaching kids, to help children become better and help them with any needs or wants they have to be successful in life, I want to help them reach their milestones in life. This would really help me continuing on getting my degree and not being worried my tuition will keep me from doing that.
    Thank you,

Teaching the last few months has been nothing short of amazing and I know now that it would be a dream come true to get my Master’s degree in Education and a permanent licensure in Oklahoma! I am a mother of 3, and always telling them not to give up on their dreams no matter how old they are; this would really encourage them. I know that helping students with all learning abilities is my calling and I would be so thankful and appreciative to have extra help to achieve this goal!

    I’m currently a community college student and I transferring this fall to a four-year institute. I really need this grant because I would love to be able to help children in other countries learn English. So that they can come over here and change their life for the better. I feel that everyone deserves an equal opportunity for a better life and if I can be the one to help them get it. I would be so happy! This grant would help to achieve my goal of being to help children, who think that they have no other option or think that they’re stupid because they don’t understand something. I know that feeling and it’s awful,so if I could help a child to understand a subject that they are struggling with or give them a chance at an education to have a better life. Then all of the stress will be worth it.
