Teaching Scholars Program Prepares Future Educators and Offers Scholarships | Education

To recruit and train high quality teachers such as Zakiya Ruth, Lenoir-Rhyne University is accepting applications for its Teaching Fellowship program until January 10.

LR’s Teaching Scholars program offers scholarships of up to $ 5,500 per year for four years to new freshmen. These funds are offered in addition to federal, state, and LR financial aid for which the student is qualified, but cannot be combined to exceed tuition or combined with other merit awards. The average LR student eligible for this program receives approximately $ 16,000 per year in scholarships and grants from the institution.

Beginning in their first year of college, academics accepted into the program will be placed in Hickory-area school districts to serve as tutors, small group leaders and teaching assistants.

The benefits of the program for each researcher include:

Participation in seminars and enrichment experiences every semester.
