Minneapolis Retired Teachers, Inc. announces its 2013 educational scholarship for persons interested in a career in teaching. The grant seeks to encourage persons to enter teaching fields in which a need for additional trained teachers exists. Grants will probably not be made to persons seeking to enter an already overcrowded field. The grant for 2013 (with a minimum of $500.00) will be divided among qualified applicants. This year’s grants must be used within a two-year period. June 30, 2015 is the expiration date.
This scholarship program is made possible through contributions by retired Minneapolis teachers.
Examples of women and men who may be eligible for a grant are:
