Education Scholarships

Kids spend much of their day in school, so making sure their teachers are well-educated and satisfied should be a priority. Surprisingly, this is often not the case. Students who major in education frequently graduate school with empty bank accounts and student loan debt. Things don’t improve much when they find teaching positions: Complaints of meager wages and overcrowded, poorly funded inner-city classrooms are so common that we’re lucky students are still willing to major in education.



Students who enter the field of education may find rewarding careers, but the chance of placing in the higher end of the pay stratum is low. (Check with the U.S. Department of Education for statistics.) As is true of all majors, graduating with little or no debt is a key component of financial security. Student loans have rightfully received a bad reputation for controlling one’s career decisions. If you already have a career plan, you won’t want debt changing it for you.

Taking advantage of education college scholarships and grants is a good way to avoid student loans. Because education is a field of major importance, numerous education scholarships have been created to assist students who want to get through school without debt.

Private scholarships and government assistance programs such as the TEACH Grant and the Federal Perkins Loan Teacher Cancellation have been created to fill schools with qualified and well-educated individuals. Future teachers should look to education scholarships and such government programs for scholarship awards created with them in mind. By conducting a free college scholarships search at Scholarships.com, students can find myriad information about education scholarships and other awards they will be eligible to receive.
