Brown Foundation Academic Scholarships

Post  Admin on Mon Mar 01, 2010 2:27 am

The first Brown Foundation scholarship was awarded in 1989 in an effort to cultivate minority educators. The Foundation's goal in providing financial assistance to minority education majors is to create a future in which all students see a view of the world that includes them and to provide role models that are so important to identity formation.


Scholarships are $1,000 per year for two academic years (i.e., $500 per semester).


Applicants must meet the following criteria:

Be admitted to a teacher education program. Confirmation of their acceptance is required by the date of the award.
Be enrolled at an institution of higher education with an accredited program in teacher education.
Be enrolled at least half-time as defined by the higher education institution of attendance.
Have a minimum 3.0 grade point average on a 4.0 scale.
Submit two recommendations: one from a teacher, counselor, or other school official and one from a person familiar with the applicant's skills and abilities who is not a family member.
