From Classroom to Classroom Scholarship

Organization & Scholarship Overview:
Our mission at is to champion the cause of children’s education and support teachers and parents as they seek to help their kids succeed in school and fall in love with learning. We believe everyone should have an equal opportunity to access education, but we know college tuition costs have significantly risen in the last decade. To better support future educators as they pursue their own education, we’re excited to offer our Classroom to Classroom Scholarship. If you’re a high school senior about to start your first year of college and can clearly demonstrate outstanding academic achievement, then we want to hear from you! Once per year, we’ll select one winner to receive a $5,000 scholarship to apply towards their education. In addition to this cash award, the winner will also receive two Lifetime Memberships (one for the winner and one to share with an existing or aspiring K-12 teacher of the winner’s choice).
