Current Year 12 students or recent BBC Graduates who are pursuing a teaching career are invited to apply for a PMSA Teacher Education Scholarship, which provides financial assistance for aspiring teachers from PMSA schools.

The Presbyterian and Methodist Schools Association (PMSA) is offering a limited number of Teacher Education Scholarships to current and past students of PMSA schools – Brisbane Boys’ College, Clayfield College, Somerville House and Sunshine Coast Grammar School.

The purposes of the scholarships are:
• To foster a respect for the importance of teaching as a profession.
• To assist aspiring teachers who align with Christian faith schools to complete an approved teacher education program to enable them to make a difference in the schools they serve.

The PMSA Teacher Education Scholarships are intended to help develop a group of suitably qualified teachers who aspire to both serve in PMSA schools and gain valuable teaching
experience in other educational settings.

A limited number of scholarships, each worth $2,000 per annum for up to four years of study will be made available to suitable students entering an undergraduate teacher education degree course.

Eligibility
To be eligible, an applicant must:
• Either be a current student of a PMSA school, or have attended a PMSA school in the last two years, and have attended the PMSA school for at least two years;
• Be a permanent Australian resident student; and
• Be accepted, or will be confirmed as accepted, to commence a full-time undergraduate teacher education degree course in the next calendar year or be currently enrolled in such a course.
