College students going into teaching can now apply for state-sponsored scholarships worth up to $10,000.

There are two kinds of scholarships available. The fellowship covers $10,000 of tuition, and is renewed every year for three years. The stipend is for full-time unpaid student teachers, and that is $9,600 per semester.

Applying for the scholarship requires a completed FAFSA and students to be enrolled or student teaching as of this semester.

Central Michigan University and Grand Valley State University both say they have seen an increase in teaching program enrollment in recent years.

Interested students can apply here.
