What is the Teacher Education Scholarship?
Each year Oregon PTA awards a limited number of tuition scholarships to high school seniors or college students who are Oregon residents who want to teach in Oregon at an elementary or secondary school. The scholarship may be used at any Oregon public college or university that trains teachers or that transfers credits in education.
The scholarship is a non-renewable $500 merit award, however, winners may re-apply the next year.
