IUPUC announced today that three recipients of the Next Generation Hoosier Education Scholarship are attending IUPUC in the fall. The recipients are incoming first-year students Maylee Barriger of Hope, Caroline Sheaffer of Waldron, and Shelby Wilson of Scipio.

The Next Generation Hoosier Educators Scholarship provides 200 high-achieving high school and college students interested in pursuing a career in education the opportunity to earn a renewable scholarship of up to $7,500 each year for four academic years. In exchange, students agree to teach for five years at an eligible Indiana school or repay the corresponding, prorated amount of the scholarship.

Applicants must be Indiana residents currently attending a high school or college in Indiana who are high-performing students (top 20% in their high school class or a standardized test). While in college, the recipients must pursue a course of study that would enable them to teach at an eligible Indiana school after college graduation, maintain a 3.0/4.0 GPA, complete 30 credit hours per year, and meet all other requirements established by their program to renew the scholarship.

“The Next Generation Hoosier Educators Scholarship is a great program that provides financial assistance to high-achieving students who want to commit themselves to the field of education,” said Dr. Chris Walcott, Head of the Division of Education at IUPUC. “We are so happy that these deserving students are being rewarded for their hard work and dedication to the education profession.”
