Do you feel the need to improve your skills or enhance your knowledge in your area of expertise?
How would you like to do so with the aid of a scholarship?
The time is now to apply for a scholarship through the Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Nebraska Professional Development Fund.
The scholarships are awarded three times each year. The next deadline, for the spring term, is Saturday, Feb. 8. All applications must be made through the NSEA website. Applicants will receive an e-mail confirming receipt of the application (if you do not receive an e-mail, call NSEA).
Scholarships may be used to pursue an advanced degree, seek additional teaching endorsements or to take course work for certification requirements. Stipends may cover up to 50 percent of the cost of a single, three-hour college course. Each applicant may apply for scholarship dollars for no more than three hours of course work. Books and supplies are not covered.
To apply, NSEA members must complete the application form on the NSEA website. The form will be posted on the NSEA website through the Saturday, Feb. 8, deadline.
NSEA will notify scholarship applicants of the status of their application in March. The goal is to award stipends to the largest number of members from each of NSEA’s six governance districts. To be eligible, NSEA members must be covered by either single or family Blue Cross/Blue Shield health care.
Previous applicants, successful or not, may re-apply. However, applicants may be scholarship recipients in only two of the three scholarship cycles during a school year.
Winners must provide evidence of completion of course work at an accredited post-secondary institution before they receive the scholarship funds. All courses must be taken for credit.
Since 1986, 4,948 NSEA members have shared more than $647,500 in scholarship dollars, thanks to Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Nebraska.
For more information, contact the NSEA by calling toll-free 1-800-742-0047. Sally Bodtke (email@example.com) is the associate staff member who handles the scholarship program.
