Two local teachers are getting scholarships valued at $50,000 to get master’s degrees and study abroad through a new state program.
The University of Indianapolis and the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation selected Allison Chance, a special education teacher at Center Grove schools, and David Harker, a language arts teacher at Greenwood Middle School.
The two will be fellows in a master’s in business and education program at the University of Indianapolis. Administrators at their school districts nominated them for the fellowships. The new graduate program, starting this year at the University of Indianapolis and the Milwaukee School of Engineering in Wisconsin, is funded by the Kern Family Foundation and the Walton Family Foundation.
