Underwood-Smith Teacher Scholarship

West Virginia Higher Education Policy Commission

This scholarship is for residents of West Virginia who are or will be enrolled full-time in an accredited institution of higher education in West Virginia pursuing a course of study leading to a teacher certificate at the preschool, middle, or secondary level in West Virginia. Priority will be given to junior, senior, and graduate students. Recipients must agree to teach at the public preschool, elementary, middle, or secondary school level in West Virginia for two years for each year of scholarship assistance. However, if a scholar enters a teacher shortage area, an exceptional children's program, a school having less than average academic results or a school in an economically disadvantaged area as designated by the West Virginia Board of Education, then the scholar must teach one year for each year for which the scholarship was received.
