The Latham Education Scholarship is a four year $20,000 scholarship awarded each year to outstanding North Carolina high school seniors that wish to become classroom teachers.
The scholarship is modeled after the NC Teaching Fellows Scholarship and, as such, recipients will be expected to teach in a public, charter, or government school for four years in one of the below listed school systems/counties following graduation. Individuals have up to seven years to complete this requirement. The Lane Scholarship is administered from the ECU NC Teaching Fellows office. Recipients will have a required on-campus living component for the freshmen year, a four year programmatic component, and specific criteria for receiving funds.
The school systems/counties in the Latham Clinical Schools Network: Beaufort, Bertie, Camden, Carteret, Chatham, Clinton City, Craven, Cumberland, Currituck, Dare, Duplin, Edenton-Chowan, Edgecombe, Elizabeth City/Pasquotank, Franklin, Gates, Granville, Greene, Halifax, Harnett, Hertford, Hyde, Johnston, Jones, Lee, Lenoir, Martin, Nash/Rocky Mount, Northampton, Onslow, Pamlico, Pasquotank, Perquimans, Pitt, Roanoke Rapids (this is a school system but it is Halifax County), Sampson, Tyrrell, Vance, Warren, Washington, Wayne, Weldon City, and Wilson.
Finalists will be required to attend an on-campus interview and provide additional academic (fall semester transcript), financial (parents’ most recent 1040 tax form), and reference information (2 references in signed/sealed envelope) at the interview. Specific directions about the provision of this additional information will be sent to all candidates that advance to the interview level.
