Practicing educators in Arkansas’s public schools are encouraged to apply now for Parsons-Burnett Scholarship Grants for 2021-2022 academic year. The Parsons-Burnett Scholarship Grants are awarded to Arkansas public school educators for the purpose of furthering their own education. Awards are intended for courses of study leading to an advanced degree, certification or endorsement. Requests for funds to pay off student debt are not eligible.

Applications must be submitted online between March 15 and June 15. The scholarship grants are funded by contributions from members of the Arkansas Retired Teachers Association (ARTA), which is a professional organization of Arkansas’s public education retirees.
