Marian University recently unveiled its new school of education, the Educators College, which in partnership with the state of Indiana will offer full scholarships to students who enroll in the program and agree to accept teaching positions in Indiana when they graduate.
"If we expect more from our education
students, then we must be prepared for them to expect more from us," Marian University President Daniel Elsener said. "Marian University will
pair our scholarship dollars with outside programs and funds to ensure that our
Educators College is attracting the best and brightest future teachers in the
state, regardless of their financial situations."
Students in the Educators College will
benefit from recent legislation in the Indiana General Assembly that created
the Next Generation Hoosier Educators Scholarship (NGHES), which provides up to
$7,500 per year for four years -- or up to $30,000, for 200 high-achieving high
school or college students.
"We must never shrink from our
responsibility to improve both our K-12 schools and our schools of
education," Indiana Commission on Higher Education Commissioner
Teresa Lubbers said. "The innovative approach within the Educators College at
Marian University will prepare students to be effective teachers on day one and
provide students with the funding necessary to alleviate the crippling debt so
many of our teachers face after leaving college."
