In addition to loans available through our Student Financial Services Office, Antioch University New England’s Waldorf program students in need of financial assistance will have the opportunity during their first summer intensive to apply to the Center For Anthroposophy for the following options:
AWSNA† Teacher Education Fund
If you are planning to begin a Waldorf teaching career after you graduate, then this is an option for you. What begins as a loan, is forgiven at a rate of one third of the total per year of postgraduate teaching at an AWSNA member school. Should you decide not to teach after all, the loan would become due and payable after graduation. The awards range from $500 to $1500.
AWSNA Teacher Education Fund
Currently Practicing Teacher Grant
This special grant requires financial participation of the AWSNA member school where the applicant is currently teaching. The school decides on the amount they wish to support their teacher’s training with and the Association will match that amount up to $1500 depending each year on the number of eligible applicants and the total amount available.
Grants based on the documented need and on the demonstrated ability to benefit the field of Waldorf education. The awards range from $500 to $1500.
Applications for the above options will be mailed to those accepted into the program. Completed applications, and required documents, should be turned in to the Center for Anthroposophy during the July 3-week intensive in Wilton, New Hampshire. Awards are made in the fall semester for students who have completed at least one summer semester of classes, and will be in the form of a tuition reduction for subsequent terms. Applications without required documentation will not be considered.
E.L. Boyer Teacher Scholarship
Antioch Year Round Students only may apply for this scholarship. Information and application materials are distributed to Year Round students late in the fall semester. A written essay is required. Awards range from $750 to $3000. The scholarship is awarded the following spring semester.
