Global Gateway for Teachers Scholarships

Thanks to the generosity of highly committed donors to the IU School of Education, participants in the Global Gateway for Teachers have the opportunity to apply for scholarship funding to support them during their Global Gateway student teaching experience. The following scholarships are available:

  • The Chan and Wu Memorial Scholarship was established by an IU alumna in honor of her parents who worked tirelessly all their lives, supported her education at IU, and provided global opportunities for their next generation. Her mother was a teacher and her father always wished to have a scholarship named after their family and she wishes to provide students the opportunity to study abroad, an experience she believes is life changing.
  • The Global Gateway for Teachers Scholarship is funded by multiple donors, including former participants of Global Gateway programs and others who believe in the importance of intercultural and international experiences for teachers. This scholarship supports undergraduate or graduate students who are participating in any of the Global Gateway for Teachers programs.
  • The Laura Ann Rawlins Hinkle Scholarship helps students of Native American descent or participants in the Navajo Nation Program cover tuition costs and travel expenses related to student teaching on Navajo Indian reservations in Arizona, New Mexico, and Utah. The scholarship honors Laura Ann Rawlins Hinkle, an elementary teacher.
  • The Jepsen International Study Scholarship is intended to help students who want to participate in the Overseas Program with tuition and travel expenses. The scholarship offers participants up to $4,000. This scholarship is made possible by a generous gift from alumnus Keith J. Jepsen, Ed.D., and his wife Kathleen A. Dore, who are committed to fostering global understanding.
  • The Jorgensen Family Global Gateway Scholarship was established by Jane and Jay Jorgensen. Jane, BS ’72, as well as their daughter Molly (BS ’09) and her brother David Anspaugh (BS ’70) are all graduates of the School of Education. Molly has travelled to Kenya and experienced the transformational nature of that country and the Jorgensen family hopes to help student teachers develop a similarly deep appreciation for people of other cultures. This scholarship is intended to support students who are participating in the Overseas Program. Preference is given to female students who will be student teaching in Tanzania or India.
  • The Jongsma Family Global Gateway Scholarship was established by Eugene and Kathleen Jongmsa and is awarded to undergraduate students participating in the Overseas Program. Eugene Jongsma earned his B.S. in 1964 and his Ed.D. in 1971 from Indiana University. Kathleen Jongsma studied and taught at IU from 1969 to 1971. The Jongsmas have spent nearly 50 years serving in a variety of domestic and international educational settings and have come to value the benefits of cross-cultural experiences. They feel blessed to be able to support prospective teachers who are seeking to student teach abroad.
  • The Jacki Groverman Stutzman Scholarship is awarded to selected pre-service teachers who wish to take part in the Overseas or Urban Program in the Chicago Public Schools. Jacki Stutzman, BS ’66, taught third grade at the Armstrong Elementary School for 22 of her 26 years in education. She was honored as one of the 1992-93 teachers of the year by Highland Park Independent School District in Dallas, Texas.

Recipients are determined by the School of Education Scholarship Committee. To apply for any of the above scholarships, download and complete the Global Gateway for Teachers Scholarship Application, and return to Katie Paulin in Suite 1000 by February 1, 2018.
