Marian University unveils Educators College, featuring full scholarship opportunities
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."
