Notre Dame of Maryland University Students Receive Hattie M. Strong Scholarships
December 18, 2012
Two students from Notre Dame of Maryland University's School of Education have received prestigious Hattie M. Strong scholarships, the school recently announced. Ariel Carter ’13, is a Women’s College student from Baltimore who is completing her student teaching internship to become certified as an elementary school teacher, and Alexandra Marcum M’13 from Crofton, Maryland, is a student in Notre Dame's Graduate Education Intern Program who is also preparing to become a certified elementary school teacher.
The Hattie M. Strong Foundation, founded in 1928, recently replaced its student loan program with the Strong Scholars Program in response to the student debt crisis. The scholarship is intended to offset the expenses students incur during the student-teaching semester.
The committee looks for students who have exhibited outstanding success and enthusiasm in field experience prior to the final year of the program or graduate students whose life experiences prior to enrollment reveal the same traits; students with demonstrated financial need; and students who have achieved a minimum 3.0 GPA in the two semesters prior to their final year.
