As several states now require educators to earn a master's degree, many teachers are searching for ways to advance their education without spending thousands of dollars. While these individuals can take out loans and apply for grants, one of the best ways to make a graduate education more affordable is by applying for scholarships.

Recently, The University of Scranton announced in a press release that it is accepting applications for the Bisk Foundation Teacher Education Scholarship. This award will be given to two educators who are enrolled in either the Master of Science in Education: Curriculum and Instruction or the Master of Science in Educational Administration program.

By earning these scholarships, teachers can save 25% on tuition as they work toward an online master's degree. The deadline for application is October 17, and applicants must be first-time students, and already posses a bachelor's, master's, specialist or doctorate degree from an accredited school.

"These scholarships reflect The University of Scranton's commitment to helping outstanding teachers to gain the expertise and skills to inspire and lead their students and colleagues," said W. Jeffrey Welsh, dean of the university's College of Graduate and Continuing Education.
