IUPUI-Patricia Tefft Memorial Scholarship (School of Education)
Awarded to full-time undergraduate students majoring in Elementary Education within the Teacher Education Program at the School of Education who have a record of academic excellence as demonstrated by a minimum GPA of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale, demonstrated financial need, and a demonstrated interest in special education, literacy, or early childhood. Because, as part of its mission, Indiana University is committed to diversity, special consideration will be given to underrepresented populations, including but not limited to financially challenged students, and/or students with diverse cultural experiences. The Donors have a preference for non-traditional, returning female students.
Describe in one paragraph your interest in special education, literacy, or early childhood.
