Scholarships to be awarded during Teacher Appreciation Week

AUSTIN — National Teacher Appreciation Week is May 1-5, 2017, and WGU Texas is celebrating the educators in the Education Service Center, Region 20 (ESC-20) with a Teacher Appreciation Scholarship.

WGU Texas and ESC-20 established a strategic partnership in 2016 with the goal of providing pathways to high-quality educational opportunities that support educators and address the statewide teacher shortage. In addition to the scholarship, WGU Texas offers a five percent tuition discount to all ESC-20 employees.

In addition to its proven quality, WGU Texas’ Teachers College degree programs are affordable — about $6,000 per year for most programs. Also, the competency-based model allows students a flexible study pace, allowing them to accelerate their studies and complete their degrees faster.
