The Kirkwood Teachers of Color is a group in the Kirkwood School District that strives to connect teachers of color to each other, their administrators, colleagues and other sources of support and growth.
This group provides opportunities that allow teachers of color to receive support and experiences that combine culturally responsive mentoring and coaching with professional development and leadership opportunities relevant to their individual needs and interests.
KTOC is hoping to establish the Kirkwood Teachers of Color Scholarship that will be awarded to a Kirkwood High School senior who identifies as Black, Indigenous, or a student of color (BIPOC).
This senior must possess a 2.5 or higher GPA and plan to attend a two or four year academic institution; this will include vocational, technical, or trade schools.
As a part of the application process, the student will compose an essay about “Growing Up as Black, Indigenous, or a Student of Color (BIPOC)". This award will be in the amount of $1,000 and will be non-renewable.
Please consider a donation to help establish this scholarship.
