Phil Loney and Pat Wiser Scholarship Fund

Scholarship Criteria: Undergraduate, graduate, and continuing education students are eligible to apply. Preference will be given to students preparing for a career in K-12 English Education (writing, literature, reading, language arts, and related fields). If there are insufficient numbers of highly-qualified English Education applicants, preference will be given to highly-qualified students preparing for a career in Elementary Education.

Applicants must submit a special essay that addresses their passion for teaching and their career goals. Preference will be given to students planning to serve under-served student populations, including either rural or urban communities. Awards are based on need and merit.
