The Goizueta Foundation Scholarship for Latino Educators
The Goizueta Scholars Fund for Initial Certification of Latino Educators Committee is in search of applicants for a prestigious scholarship available at Georgia Southern University: The Goizueta Foundation Scholarship for Latino Educators. This scholarship, funded by the Goizueta Foundation of Atlanta, helps support Latino/Hispanic students at Georgia Southern University who are seeking to become teachers.
Scholarship recipients will be:
1. Enrolled full-time at Georgia Southern University, for at least one semester, during the 2016-2017 academic year;
2. Pursuing an academic program at Georgia Southern University that will lead to initial certification as a teacher;
3. Of Latino/Hispanic background;
4. Resident in the US with family members resident in the US;
5. In possession of a legal Social Security number (thus, DACA recipients are eligible); and
6. Able to clearly and fully document financial need, for example, via the FAFSA (DACA recipients can complete the FAFSA).
New, incoming freshmen, transfer students, and graduate students who meet these criteria are all eligible. So are current undergraduate, and graduate students at Georgia Southern University who meet these criteria.
Scholarship funds can be used for on-campus housing, meal plans, books, tuition, and fees.Recipients can apply for renewal of the scholarship every academic year. However, such renewal is not automatic. Renewal of a scholarship depends upon: steady progress toward graduation; good academic standing; compliance with the Georgia Southern University Student Conduct Code; extracurricular activities; and community and/or institutional service such as tutoring local students and/or recruiting new applicants for this scholarship. All undergraduates are limited to 8 semesters of scholarship funds. All initial certification graduate students are limited to 5 semesters of scholarship funds.
The application deadline is April 1st, 2016 for scholarships for the 2016-17 academic year.
