Scholarship opportunities are plentiful for any high school student looking to study education / teaching at college. However, it’s important to be strategic about which scholarship opportunities you apply for.

Find Scholarships in the Teaching Niche

By focussing on scholarships aimed at future teachers, you have a much better chance of being successful. More general scholarships, that are open to students not doing teaching courses, often have hundreds or even thousands of applicants. It’s just not worth your while to go for scholarships where the chances of being successful are so slim.

Scholarships for future teachers are listed at Teacher.org and Niche. However, it’s a good idea to look wide and far to find obscure teaching scholarships not listed on popular websites.
