Hollinshead Future Educator’s Scholarship

This scholarship fund is a competitive program designed to recognize an incoming full-time, degree-seeking freshman student that desires to seek a career in education. Applicants from diverse and underrepresented student populations such as minority groups and first-generation college students are encouraged to apply.

Criteria: Recipients must apply for the scholarship prior to November 1 of their high school senior year to be
considered for review. The initial award amount is $1500 for the freshman and sophomore year until the student is officially granted admission to the Emmanuel School of Education program in their junior year of college enrollment. The award amount increases to $5000 annually for the junior and senior year of enrollment.

The initial process requires a scholarship application along with 3 supplemental documents: 2 reference letters and a 500 word essay. Please inform the individuals completing the requested academic and character references that all recommendations should be submitted electronically to Rose Dunaway, School of Education Administrative Assistant at rose.dunaway@ec.edu.

The award recipient will be determined by the School of Education Governance Committee.
