- Scholarship Description
UCT (United Commercial Travelers) is a fraternal benefit society driven by our members and their dedication to community service. UCT invests in the future of our communities by investing in students. Giving back isn’t just something we say – we’ve been doing it for more than 130 years. We do this by sponsoring several scholarship programs to help students meet the financial challenges of a college education.
The UCT Scholarship Program, funded by UCT Charities, provides scholarships to students and teachers seeking college degrees or certification to work with people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Applicants must meet one of the following criteria: be a teacher of students with intellectual disabilities who needs extra course work to be certified/retain certification; be an experienced teacher who wishes to become certified to teach students with intellectual disabilities; be a college junior or senior whose undergraduate course of study is in special education, focusing on teaching people with intellectual disabilities; currently enrolled in courses to become a certified instructor for people with intellectual disabilities; or be in the second year of a two-year associate's degree program at an accredited school with the course of study focusing on teaching people with intellectual disabilities. Applicants must demonstrate financial need.
