Charles Butt Scholarship
for Aspiring Teachers
Application Is Now Open
The Charles Butt Scholarship is a one-of-a-kind opportunity for passionate aspiring educators looking to make a difference for Texas public school students.
The Scholarship includes $8,000–$10,000 in annual funding for up to four years, professional development opportunities, mentorship, and participation in a statewide network of aspiring teachers.
We are looking for applicants who want a career in teaching, believe in the importance of public education, are leaders in their communities, and reflect the diversity of the state of Texas. To be eligible, applicants must be committed to teaching in a majority-economically disadvantaged school or in a shortage subject area (math, science, special education, or bilingual) in the Texas public school system.
This year, approximately 100 scholarships will be awarded through teacher preparation programs at 12 partner universities.
Please share this scholarship opportunity with anyone who might be interested!
