Teacher Scholarship Program

Teacher Scholarship Program

 

 

In 2005 the Greater Enid Chamber of Commerce approached the Enid Public School Foundation concerning managing a scholarship fund for EPS teachers pursuing a masters degree. The scholarships were funded for three years by annual $1000 donations from each of the following: the Greater Enid Chamber of Commerce, Advance Foods, and Great Lakes Carbon. 

 

In 2008 the Foundation took over funding of the scholarships. The Teacher Scholarship Program has enabled numerous EPS teachers to complete their degrees. 

 

Applicants submit an application (see below), letter of recommendation, current resume and official transcripts as part of the application process. 

 

Upon acceptance of the scholarship, recipients agree to successfully complete the course(s). Students will be responsible for repayment of the scholarship amount for any courses resulting in an “I” or “W” on the grade report.

 

Scholarship recipients must meet the following requirements:

  • remain employed by Enid Public Schools
  • maintain a minimum 3.0 GPA
  • be degree seeking and be admitted to a graduate degree program

 

Applications are accepted for the fall and spring academic semesters. Fall semester applications are due by July 15, while spring semester applications are due by December 15.
