The Kansas Teacher Service Scholarship Program provides financial assistance to both students pursuing bachelor’s degree programs and currently licensed teachers pursuing endorsement in hard-to-fill disciplines or master’s degrees in hard-to-fill disciplines or either group planning to teach in an underserved geographic area in Kansas. First priority in awarding goes to junior and senior level college students (Freshmen rarely receive this award) and currently licensed teachers who meet the outlined criteria and provide an official copy of all academic transcripts and at least one academic, or employment-related (current teachers only), letter of recommendation. Recipients must sign an agreement to complete the program of study and teach one year for each year the scholarship is received. If the recipient selects a different major or does not teach in Kansas in the specified curriculum, the scholarship becomes a loan (with an interest rate equal to the Federal Plus Loan + an additional 5% subject to change annually) accruing from the date scholarship funds are released by the Board of Regents office.
The application deadline date has not yet been finalized for this year, but is expected to remain the same as last year. The deadline date shown here is tentative based on last year's date. Please che ... sign up for full scholarship deadline information.
