New first-time, full-time Ancilla College and Marian University students pursuing four-year education degrees will receive an automatic 50% tuition discount each year they are enrolled at the university’s Fred S. Klipsch Educators College. The new scholarship begins in the fall of 2024.

By awarding the new Educators for Tomorrow scholarships, Marian University hopes to encourage more students to pursue primary and secondary education degrees and become teachers. Full-time students at both Marian University’s Ancilla College (MUAC) and Marian’s Indianapolis campus are eligible to receive the 50% tuition discount each year of their college career when they meet the following criteria:

•      Admission to the four-year education program at Klipsch Educators College.

•      Have a 3.5 GPA or above at the time of acceptance.

•      Declare education as their major at admission and maintain their education major throughout their time at Marian.

“Our strategic mission at the Fred S. Klipsch Educators College is to encourage and prepare more students – especially those in underrepresented populations – to pursue teaching careers,” said LaTonya Turner, Ph.D., dean of Marian University’s Klipsch Educators College. “We are keenly aware higher education affordability may be a barrier for some students. That’s why I am excited Marian is taking yet another step toward making higher education more accessible for aspiring educators and encouraging them to pursue teaching careers.”
