Golden State Teacher Grants Available for Students in Teacher Preparation Program
The California Student Aid Commission (CSAC) recently released its brochure for the Golden State Teacher Grant (GSTG) program. The goal of the program is to encourage students to consider earning a teaching credential and teach in a high-need field at a priority school in California within five years after completing a teacher preparation program.
“Becoming a teacher is a profound calling,” says Barbara Lipinski, PhD, JD, Antioch University Santa Barbara’s Provost and Chief Executive Officer. “We are very excited about this newly launched award program from the California Student Aid Commission. It will provide the needed support for students dedicated to giving back to their communities.”
CSAC will award $20,000 Golden State Teacher Grants to over 4,400 eligible students across California, who are enrolled in a Commission on Teacher Credentialing-approved teacher preparation program on or after January 1, 2020.
“Students enrolled in our teacher credential programs are encouraged to apply for a Golden State Teacher Grant by sending an email to email@example.com,’” added Dr. Lipinski.
