Scholarship Programs for High School Future Florida Teachers
(OCREA actively participates in the
following scholarship programs.)
Florida Retired Educators Foundation
District VIII Trustee: Dr. Gayle Hodges
OCREA Committee Chair: Mrs. Janice Quint
The Foundation (FREF) is a not for profit autonomous arm of the FREA. It provides scholarships to high school seniors planning to become teachers, assistance for retired educators facing financial crisis, and publishes scientific works of significance that relate to education. FREF is made up of ten trustees, one from each district. They manage scholarship monies, screen applications from the local units, and grant one-year renewable scholarships as monies are available to graduating high school students who plan to become teachers.
The deadline is now past. Look for information next fall.
