English Family-Teacher Education Scholarship

Funded by Virginia Tech, the English Family Rescue Scholarship is a one-time scholarship awarded to graduate students who are enrolled in Virginia Tech’s teacher education program and exhibit demonstrated financial need as determined by the FAFSA. Preference will be given to those who are engaged in student teaching and have a desire to remain in Virginia upon graduation to work in areas of teacher shortage or economically depressed communities. This scholarship may be reduced or cancelled if your demonstrated financial need changes, or if you do not complete the required thank you letter. Instructions on completing the thank you letter requirement will be emailed to awardees in the summer prior to the beginning of the next academic year. Changes in funding may cause VT to replace this award with another award for the same amount.
