Time running out on scholarship application for BCPS seniors who aspire to teach

Looking in BCPS classrooms for next generation of BCPS teachers

TOWSON, MD – An incredible opportunity for graduating seniors will end on Friday, March 1. That is the application deadline for the BCPS Scholarship Loan Program.

Through the program, BCPS students can apply for a loan scholarship worth $4,000 per year for up to four years. Renewal awards are automatic, pending transcript verification of grade point average (in good academic standing) and full-time status. The award may be used for tuition, fees, books, or educational supplies.

In schools across the area, BCPS teachers who graduated from Baltimore County Public Schools proudly display their BCPS Alumni pennants. Even Interim Superintendent Verletta White is a BCPS graduate. Building on that legacy, the school system offers scholarship loans to encourage even more students to become teachers.

“As I travel throughout our schools, I get to know so many talented young people,” said White. “After they graduate, we want them to come back and teach in our schools. I can’t imagine a more rewarding or in-demand career. Teaching offers so much – the opportunity to inspire others, share knowledge, and help shape the community and the future workforce.”

Applications and a fact sheet about the program are available online.

To apply, BCPS high school seniors must have a minimum GPA of 2.80 and submit an application accompanied with a resume documenting school and community activities and three letters of recommendation. Once accepted into the program, recipients must sign a promissory note, agreeing to teach full-time in a Baltimore County public school, one year for each year of the award; enroll full-time in an approved teacher education program at a Maryland institution; maintain Maryland residency; and begin employment within six months of college graduation. Failure to maintain eligibility for the award based on GPA, full-time status or Maryland residency requirement, will require that the recipient repay the scholarship.

The BCPS Office of Human Resources will notify scholarship recipients of their award by Monday, April 1. For more information, please contact Carla Simons at csimons@bcps.org.
