Muskingum College to award 38 full-tuition graduate scholarships

Thirty-eight qualified students will receive full-tuition graduate scholarships at Muskingum College beginning this fall, thanks to the continuation of a grant from the Ohio Department of Education and the Ohio Board of Regents.

"Building and improving teacher capacity remains essential to the Ohio core initiative,” said Ruthann Fagan, Muskingum’s dean of Graduate and Continuing Studies. “This grant makes it possible for us to increase the number of available licensed teachers in the areas of advanced mathematics, laboratory-based science and foreign languages for Ohio’s schools."

Each scholarship will cover full tuition costs for 24 semester hours of graduate work fulfilling both the licensure for adolescent/young adults (grades 7 – 12) in math and science and the licensure for multi-age (K – 12) licensure in either Spanish or French. The 24 hours earned during this program can be applied toward the completion of a Master of Arts in Education degree at Muskingum College.

Interested candidates must hold a bachelor’s degree and possess a strong background in the content of the licensure, whether it be math, science or foreign language.

The program is designed to accommodate the busy work schedule of potential students by offering a weekend schedule of classes that will begin in October and conclude in early May.
