Part of the Educators mission is, of course, education! As part of our dedication to that mission, we believe it is important to help students in their learning journeys through our scholarship program.
This year, we are giving $70,000 in scholarship money to students heading off to college. Thirty-five current high school seniors will be selected to receive $2,000!
Scholarships are awarded to graduating seniors based on their academic record, participation in school and community activities, and their demonstration of one or more of Educators Core Values:
