As a teacher, you’ll make a difference in the lives of children and adolescents. As an NC State Education Scholar, you’ll make a difference in the lives of those in areas that need you the most.
The NC State College of Education has established partnerships with several school districts to provide a $10,000 financial award to at least 10 students who graduate in December 2020 or May 2021 and teach for at least two years in districts facing teaching shortages.

"I am excited to be an NC State Education Scholar because it provides me the opportunity to serve a rural community in the same area in which I grew up, which makes me feel like I am able to give back to those close to home. The NC State Education Scholars program will also allow me to make an impact on students in a rural area while preparing myself financially for the future."
