Description:
What is the Teacher Education Scholarship?

Each year Oregon PTA awards a limited number of tuition scholarships to high school seniors or college students who are Oregon residents who want to teach in Oregon at an elementary or secondary school. The scholarship may be used at any Oregon public college or university that trains teachers or that transfers credits in education.

The scholarship is a non=renewable $500 merit award, however, winners may re-apply the next year.


How are the Scholarships Funded?

Teacher Education Scholarships (TES) are financed by the contributions of local PTA/PTSA units, councils, individuals, Honorary Life Membership fees, and by a basket raffle held each year at the annual Oregon PTA convention. All monies received for the fund are used for scholarships. There are no administrative costs deducted from the account.

The number of scholarships awarded each year depends on the amount received from all resources. In 2018, 6 scholarships were awarded.

In 2018, Oregon PTA celebrated 72 years of awarding scholarships to Oregon studnets!

Your tax deductible contribution can be sent to:

Thank you for supporting Oregon's future teachers!
