4. What kind of commitment are scholarship teachers required to make?

As scholarship recipients, teachers must attend classes and successfully complete 9-15 credits during the contract year toward an Associate Degree in Early Childhood Education. Teachers will be asked to contribute 10% of the cost of tuition and books for each course. At the end of the scholarship year, teachers are required to remain employed at their sponsoring center for one additional year in return for a salary increase or bonus.
