Scholarship Sponsored by School Superintendents of Alabama
The process for awarding student scholarships has changed, effective Spring, 2009. SSA awards nine (9) $1,000 student scholarships to high school seniors in Alabama. The student scholarship recipients will be solicited and selected by the nine Superintendents who were named district finalists of the SSA/Schneider Electric Superintendent of the Year Award.
Each of these nine Superintendents will have the honor of not only selecting, but also presenting $1,000 to the student chosen in his or her school system. Because SSA recognizes the importance of attracting quality young people into the teaching profession and desires to do all possible to achieve this goal, the nine high school seniors will be selected based on the student's intent to pursue a degree in education; graduation during the spring of the year selected; a minimum 3.0 GPA; and a minimuim ACT score of 18. Each of the nine student scholarship recipients will be notified by his or her Superintendent.
