    Educator's Legacy Scholarship Interest Form

    To honor and recognize the importance of excellent teaching, McDaniel College offers a $120,000 scholarship ($30,000 annually) to the children of K-12 and community college educators, as well as children of PreK educators working in center-based daycares operated in commercial care spaces, who have at least four years of current employment in a school setting and are eligible for full-time benefits at their institutions. Any service in a PreK center-based commercial daycare, K-12 school or community college qualifies as long as the employment is directly through the school or college -- teachers, counselors, nurses, support staff, administrators – at least four years of service equals recognition with up to a four year scholarship based on the student’s status as freshman or transfer. Students are required to live on campus to receive the $30,000 scholarship. Students who are eligible and choose to commute will receive $20,000 annually.

    All admissible first year and transfer students who would like to be considered for this scholarship must complete and submit the form below.
