NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Western Governors University is observing National Teacher Appreciation Week this week by offering scholarships for education professionals, according to a news release.
The release says WGU plans to offer up to $2 million in scholarships for current and future education professionals who are working toward their bachelor’s or master’s degrees through WGU’s Teachers College.
The release says Tennessee saw a decline in educators in 2020 due to COVID-19, as well as issues about access to higher education degrees.
