According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the standard education requirement for secondary teachers is a bachelor's degree. However, if individuals wish to become postsecondary teachers or work in a state where more advanced credentials are required, a master's degree may be necessary.

In order to make earning this graduate credential more affordable, The University of Scranton recently gave scholarships to two teachers who demonstrated their commitment to their students and the profession, according to a press release. These students - Laura Longobardo and Anne Pereira - were given scholarships worth more than $4,000 each, or one-quarter of their current tuition.

Since its 2010 founding, 18 students have received a total of more than $76,000 as part of the Bisk Foundation Teacher Education Scholarship. The award is geared towards students who are pursuing a Master of Science in Curriculum and Instruction or a Master of Science in Educational Administration.

Degree seekers who want to apply for the Special Spring 2012, Part B session of the scholarship must do so before the deadline of February 19, 2012.
