Thompson Johnson Scholarship for Teacher Education

The Thompson Johnson Scholarship for Teacher Education is an annual scholarship awarded to a teacher education major during his or her student teaching semester. Preference will be given to students of color who demonstrate financial need. Student teaching is a significant time commitment and does not allow for a part-time job. The scholarship is designed to ease that burden and will be awarded to a senior each year.
