Educator's Legacy Scholarship
To honor and recognize the importance of excellent teaching, McDaniel College offers a scholarship of up to $120,000 ($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 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. The scholarship award for students who are eligible to commute is $20,000 annually. Should a student move from resident to commuter status, the Legacy Scholarship will be reduced from $30,000 to $20,000.
