State will lure teachers with scholarships

Sallie Owen, of the A+ Education Foundation, passed this note along recently:

The state will begin offering $2.4 million in scholarships for teacher education students. Priority will be given to applicants who want to teach math, special education, science and English language arts. Applicants must be Alabama residents enrolled at in-state institutions, and recipients will be required to teach in Alabama. Scholarships will be available for traditional four-year undergraduate students as well as those pursuing a three-year alternative teaching license. The first awards will be announced by May.

Information on how to apply is not immediately available. Keep an eye here for updates when we know more.
