Financial Aid Opportunity for Distance Education Teacher Education Majors

Through a generous grant from the State Employee’s Credit Union, students enrolled in either our elementary education, middle grades education, or special education degree programs are eligible for financial aid, which will cover most of the tuition during their program. The SECU Appalachian Partnership Scholarship is designed to assist students who are completing their Bachelor’s degree through our distance education program, particularly at our sites in Burke, Caldwell, Catawba, and Wilkes counties. This assistance comes in the form of both financial assistance – the scholarship – and programming assistance, such as career development workshops. The ultimate goal of the scholarship and program is to produce highly prepared teachers to teach in their home counties.
