Kathy Williams Scholarship for BIPOC Students
Increasing the number of BIPOC educators requires intentional preparation, hiring, providing ongoing support and addressing college affordability. The ISEA Kathy Williams Scholarship for BIPOC students helps address college affordability at the beginning of the program when a student needs it most. The scholarship will be available to a BIPOC student applicant once they are accepted into their respective college of education program. In addition to the scholarship, the student will be enrolled into the NEA Aspiring Educators program. The deadline for application is January 15.
