The scholarship is available to teachers outside the district as well.
Applications are available on the front page of the District 202 website (www.psd202.org) under “News” and “Announcements.” Applications must be received by Oct. 18, and the scholarship winner will be announced no later than Nov. 1.
The winner will receive $1,500 to help pay for program costs associated with a university or certified early childhood program. It can be used to reimburse expenses already incurred, with proof of enrollment and payment to an approved program.
Winners and applicants can re-apply annually.
The Bonnie McBeth Early Learning scholarship was created in May 2007. McBeth was District 202’s first kindergarten teacher in 1951. She retired from education in 1994.
