Scholarship Overview

This scholarship is for residents of West Virginia who are or will be enrolled full-time in an accredited institution of higher education in West Virginia pursuing a course of study leading to a teacher certificate at the preschool, middle, or secondary level in West Virginia. Priority will be given to junior, senior, and graduate students.
