Rachel Sleichter Endowed Scholarship for Teaching Excellence

The Rachel Sleichter Endowed Scholarship for Teaching Excellence was established in 2022 by a fundraising consortium lead by Christine Landoll, BS ‘89, MST ’92, in honor of Rachel’s dedication and persistence and support of aspiring teachers. The scholarship will provide support for students pursing an undergraduate or graduate degree in teaching, specific to K-12 education. Recipients may be enrolled full-time or part-time and may be in-state or out-of-state students. Students must qualify with a GPA of 2.7 or higher and demonstrate financial need. This scholarship is renewable.
