Teacher Pathway Scholarship

NCIC is working with its member districts to increase the percent of teachers of color in the member school districts.  We are also committed to investing in educators who are committed to returning to teach in rural Minnesota schools, especially those in the NCIC service area, which includes the school districts of Adrian, Ellsworth, Fulda, Heron Lake-Okabena, Round Lake-Brewster and Worthington.  We want to ensure that our students have access to teachers who are teaching in their field and who are committed to providing high-quality and equitable education to all students.
