Scholarship Description

The Future Teachers Conditional Scholarship and Loan Repayment program encourages outstanding students and paraprofessionals to become teachers, and assists current teachers in obtaining additional endorsements in teacher shortage subjects. In return for conditional scholarships or loan repayments, participants agree to teach in Washington K-12 public schools, (usually two years of teaching for each year of funding).

To be eligible for this program, you must meet the following criteria:

* Be a resident student of Washington state;
* Plan to complete an approved program leading to a residency teacher certificate or an additional shortage subject endorsement;
* Plan to be employed as a certificated classroom teacher in Washington K-12 public schools;
* Plan to attend an eligible college at least half-time (note: some online programs are ineligible for funding under this program);
* Not be pursuing or planning to pursue a degree in theology;
