Northeastern University’s Charlotte campus is offering a partial tuition scholarship for Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools teachers and administrators who want to pursue a masters degree in education and work in urban public schools.
CMS employees who enroll in Northeastern’s Master of Education program in Charlotte in the fall, and meet the criteria, are eligible for a $10,000 tuition scholarship.
The 20 $10,000 scholarships are being offered through the Anna and Helen MacFarland Memorial Scholarship Fund. They will go to CMS employees who are committed to working in public schools in large urban areas.
Ann Clark, chief academic officer for CMS, called the scholarships “a career-changing opportunity to blend theory with practice to effect change in public education in one of the nation’s top urban school districts.”
The fall start dates are Sept. 10 and Oct. 22. For more details: www.northeastern.edu/charlotte/cms. David Perlmutt
