MSTF Convention Scholarship for New Professionals

The Missouri State Teacher’s Foundation understands that some MSTA members, especially those newer to the profession (30 years old or younger OR in your first 7 years of teaching) have difficulty obtaining time off to attend MSTA’s Annual Convention. For 2017, MSTF is piloting a special scholarship opportunity for new professionals who will be attending MSTA’s Convention for the first time. MSTF will provide five scholarships of up to $200 to cover the cost of one substitute. Please fill out the application below. The deadline to apply is October 16.

Kent King Scholarships

The Kent King Scholarship has undergone exciting changes. We are now offering $250 to college seniors to defray the cost of the Missouri Pre-Service Teacher Assessment (MoPTA).

The Missouri State Teachers Foundation will award non-renewable $250 scholarships to college seniors planning a career in education. The recipients of the scholarships must be enrolled as full-time students at a college or university in preparation for the teaching profession. Students must also have met the requirements needed to enter their institution’s student teaching block.

Applicants must complete the scholarship applications accurately and completely to be considered for the scholarship. All applicants must be current MSTA members with a join date prior to Feb. 1, 2018. The spring deadline for applying is April 9. Winners will be notified after April 16, 2018.
