Practicing educators in Arkansas public schools are encouraged to apply now for Parsons-Burnett Scholarship Grants for graduate study in the 2018-19 academic year.

The Parsons-Burnett Scholarship Grants are awarded to Arkansas public school educators with a proven academic record and at least one year of successful teaching experience. Applicants are evaluated on their application statement, teaching performance and financial need.

The scholarship grants are funded by contributions from the Arkansas Retired Teachers Association, or ARTA. ARTA is a professional organization for retired employees of public schools.

For more information about ARTA or the scholarship program, visit the ARTA web site at Scholarship applications, which are due by June 15, 2018, may also be downloaded from the site.
