Higher Education in Maryland


The Distinguished Scholar Teacher Education Award Program has been consolidated into the Workforce Shortage Student Assistance Grant Program.  There are no more awards being made/renewed under the DSTE program.


If you received an award under the DSTE program name, you have agreed to work as a full-time classroom teacher in a Maryland public school, one year for each year of the award, or repay the scholarship with interest. If you failed to remain eligible for a Distinguished Scholar award, you must still fulfill the obligations of the Distinguished Scholar Teacher Education promissory note. You must begin the service obligation within nine (9) months of graduation. If you held this scholarship with any other award requiring a service obligation, you must perform your service in consecutive years.

All new awards made in this major or occupational fields will now be made under the Workforce Shortage Student Assistance Grant Program.  Please visit our website for information on the WSSAG program and for program application information.
