Educate Emerging Leaders: Increasing Student Scholarship Support
Educators need and deserve excellent preparation to be successful in today’s complex environment. USC Rossier’s degree programs are rigorous, research-backed and practical academic experiences, designed to prepare high-quality graduates.
Increasing scholarship support for educators is a top priority of the USC Rossier Initiative. Many of our alumni and friends can make significant and immediate impact in this area. Education is a public service career, and the salary for new educators can be daunting. We want to help those who have a deep interest in helping others, and scholarship support can be the critical factor in making a teaching career possible.
As the first in my family to go to college, I am truly motivated to live up to my full potential as an educator. My generous scholarship gives me the amazing opportunity to learn from the renowned staff in the MAT program without having to worry about financing my graduate education.
