The Springfield Education Association (SEA) is offering a scholarship for students who plan to pursue a career in public school teaching. The scholarship is open to any graduating senior who has attended a District #186 high school for at least one year, or to a student whose parent or legal guardian is an employee of District #186, provided the student is enrolled in a public school.
The scholarship is designed to assist two deserving students who plan to become a public school teacher. Students chosen for the scholarship(s) will receive $2,500 payable over four years with a copy of their transcripts and/or proof of enrollment.
All applicant packets must be submitted to Springfield Education Association, Attn: Scholarship Committee, 3440 Liberty Drive, Springfield, IL 62704 by March 31, 2022.
Finalists should be available to be interviewed on April 21, 2022, by representatives of the SEA Scholarship Committee. Scholarship recipients/continuants will be announced by the end of May 2022 or at the recipients’ Awards Assembly, if applicable.
The scholarship was instituted in honor of Sue Handy, a Springfield educator who taught at Butler Elementary for many years. Sue wanted to encourage students to become teachers and had dreamed of creating such a scholarship. Before she was able to put it in place, she lost her battle with cancer. The scholarship was instituted in honor of Sue Handy, and had been continued under the auspices of the SEA.
