The PMSA Teacher Education Scholarships are now open for 2024 to support our next generation of educators pursue a future career in teaching.
The scholarships are designed to foster a respect for the importance of teaching as a profession and assist aspiring teachers and early childhood educators who align with Christian faith to complete an approved teacher education program.
Available to either current Year 12 students or recent graduates (last two years) from our PMSA schools, the scholarships are each worth $2,000 per year for up to four years of study for suitable students entering an undergraduate teacher education degree or early childhood education course.
Former Clayfield College student, Isabelle Taylor, was awarded a PMSA Teacher Education Scholarship in 2019 and says winning the scholarship helped encourage her love of teaching.
“The PMSA scholarship was for me a show of confidence and trust in me by the PMSA, and that was a debt that I could best repay by pushing myself to excel in my studies and in my preparation to become the best teacher I can be,’’ Isabelle said.
Isabelle graduated from the University of Queensland in 2022 after completing a Bachelor of Health, Sport and Physical Education (First Class Honours) and says her degree and a diversity of learning placements prepared her well for her current role as a junior HPE, junior science and senior biology teacher at Lockyer District State High School.
Applications will close on Friday 13 October 2023 with interviews in early November and scholarships offered in December.
