The AISD Scholarship application is now open for the Spring 2018 semester. The application will close after registration ends on the 12th class day.
The AISD Scholarship will be offered as long as funds are available and is always distributed late in the semester. Do not count on these funds to pay tuition. If you receive financial aid, talk to the Office of Financial Aid about payment options, including a tuition loan.
Students are responsible for checking. Remaining funds will be returned to AISD and will no longer be available for distribution.
The AISD Future Teacher Scholarship Program helps to support students who are certifying in areas of critical shortage in Texas. There is no obligation to teach either in Austin ISD or in the State of Texas. However, students who accept the funding and do not complete the program may be required to repay the funds.
Students in their Apprentice Teaching semester are still eligible for the AISD even though they are registered for fewer than 12 hours. If you are on financial aid, be sure to fill out your FAFSA to indicate fewer than 12 hours in your last semester. This will help prevent delays in the distribution of funds (including the AISD Scholarship), which can happen when the Office of Student Financial Aid has to refigure your package after the semester has begun because you indicated full-time enrollment.
Students are responsible for resubmitting the application each semester. Save all documentation.
As long as funds are available, all eligible students receive the award; therefore, no notification is made. You must track the funds and let UTeach know if there's a problem by the date listed above.
