The Williamson County Retired Teachers Association (WCRTA) supports future educators by awarding $1,000 WCRTA Aspiring Educator Scholarships to graduating seniors who plan to major in education. Applicants may be graduating seniors from any high school in a Williamson County independent school district.
Scholarship recipients (invited with their parents and counselor) are expected to attend the WCRTA Membership Meeting and Luncheon in June, where they will be recognized and congratulated by the WCRTA membership.
Recipients also submit a progress letter to WCRTA at the end of their college Fall and Spring semesters.
The WCRTA Aspiring Educator Scholarship application should be completed electronically. Upon completion, the applicant must print the document, sign, scan with required documentation (Letters of Acceptance, Transcript, and SAT and ACT Score Reports) into one PDF file.
Applications will then be emailed to: WCRTAscholarship@gmail.com.
WCRTA Aspiring Educator Scholarship applications are due - in good order -by March 31 at 11:59 pm CDT.
Scholarship coordinators are asked to please inform the seniors on their campus preparing for careers in education of the WCRTA Aspiring Educator Scholarship and the application process.
