Becoming an education hero, a teacher, is now more attainable, thanks to the generous support of the State Legislature and the Hawaiʻi Department of Education. The University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa College of Education will award up to $600,000 in scholarship stipends to recruit new teacher candidates, who already serve in educational capacities in our state.

The scholarship stipends are available to Hawaiʻi Department of Education employees who are emergency hires, substitute teachers, or educational assistants for the college’s statewide post-baccalaureate certificate in secondary education, which begins spring 2018.

The initiative called, Grow Our Own is designed to address teacher shortage areas in Hawaiian language, world languages, English, mathematics and science.
