- Scholarship Description
To be eligible for the William A. Crawford Minority Teacher Scholarship, applicants must: be a black or Hispanic/Latinx student; be an Indiana resident and a United States citizen or eligible non-citizen; be admitted or already attending an eligible Indiana institution as a full-time student; pursue or intend to pursue a course of study that would enable the student, upon graduation, to teach in an accredited school in Indiana; and agree in writing to apply for a teaching position at an accredited school in Indiana following that student's certification as a teacher and, if hired, to teach for at least three years.
To renew the Scholarship for subsequent academic years, a minority student (who qualified for the scholarship initially) must reapply for the scholarship each year and maintain the cumulative grade point average (GPA) required for admission to the institution’s school of education or at least a 2.0 on a 4.0 scale or the equivalent if the school does not require a minimum GPA. Apart from completing the application, applicants must also submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
