Scholarship Applications Available
The annual Helen and Edward Brancati Future Teacher Scholarship Endowment welcomes applications from individuals who will be entering the field of teaching to compete for a $1,000 scholarship. The fund was established by the Brancati's children to honor their parents' dedication to the Public Education system. August 31 is the deadline for applications to be submitted.
A complete application consists of five parts: a completed formal application, two written evaluations—one from the applicant's student teaching classroom teacher and one from his/her school's student teaching advisor, an official transcript of grades, a typewritten 500 word essay on why he/she wants to be a teacher and how this grant will benefit the applicant.
The scholarship will be awarded directly to the recipient to use as he/she sees fit, and the recipient will be required to provide a copy of his/her notarized hiring contract for the 2006-2007 school year.
