The University of Phoenix College of Education has made Teacher Appreciation Scholarships available, enabling K-12 teachers to pursue a master’s degree in education with the university.
“The scholarship recognizes the incredible commitment K-12 teachers have to their students by providing an opportunity to enhance their own careers,” University of Phoenix College of Education Academic Dean Pamela Roggeman said. “With more than a quarter of K-12 teachers in a University of Phoenix survey saying they switched careers to enter the classroom, we hope the Teacher Appreciation Scholarship program will also help inspire aspiring teachers to join this worthy profession. The university is proud to support teachers on their personal education journeys.”
The scholarship is open to all K-12 teachers with bachelor’s degrees, and is available for the first 300 qualified applicants. Applications are due on Sept. 27, and the University of Phoenix will announce the recipients in December.
“Receiving the scholarship helped me make the decision to go back to school,” JJ Owens, who received the scholarship in 2013, said. “Continuing my education was a milestone achievement, and having the opportunity to do what I love every day – help students learn and grow – means so much. I wish future scholarship recipients success in their educational journeys.”
