Academic excellence should be rewarded. But what about the educators who work so hard to make sure students have the education and preparation they need to pursue their goals? The Third Annual Fetterman & Associates Scholarship Project rewards students while recognizing the tremendous dedication of the teachers whose passion for teaching serves as an inspiration to all of us.

About the Scholarship Project
Teachers are the important foundation of our educational system. Without these dedicated educators, our students could never achieve their goals. At Fetterman & Associates, we set out to recognize these amazing educators by acknowledging their contributions.
At the same time, we aim to assist high school seniors with the high cost of a college education. With the annual average yearly price tag of college tuition coming in at $24,061 for in-state public universities, paying for higher education is more expensive than ever before.
Check out this site here for more information on the cost of college.
So we asked ourselves: How can we do our part to make college more affordable for well-deserving kids? Just as important, how can we make sure teachers get the recognition they deserve?
The Fetterman & Associates Scholarship Project awards $1,000 scholarships to five high school seniors who will attend college in the fall of 2016. To enter, each applicant is required to write an essay about his or her most influential teacher. We began accepting applications on September 22, 2015. We have received many applications, but there is still time to enter.
The scholarship competition is open until midnight on March 15, 2016.
The Fetterman & Associates Scholarship Project or its designees will choose winners based on the quality of their essays. Each winner will receive a $1,000 scholarship. Also, each teacher discussed in the winners’ essays will get a tablet.
