Normally, if a candidate receives the State Critical Needs Scholarship (CNS) reimbursement each time it is available, he/she will have to spend approximately $3200 in non-reimbursed fees and tuition costs over two years. Add to that Praxis I and Praxis II costs for your total.

N.B. There is a Special Institute Scholarship which covers tuition costs only for the four EDUC courses (not the ARTC seminars). You must complete an application and submit your Praxis I & II passing scores. There are limited funds; applicants often must wait till scholarships become available. Ask ARTC coordinator about this (302-831-4598). (See attached form)

The ACCESS Center of the Office of Professional and Continuing Education has a few limited small grants for which ARTC candidates can apply. Ask ACCESS Center about those (302-831-2743).

State Critical Needs Scholarship reimbursement MUST go through the district or charter school human resources office and is subject to their requirements as well. Ask your HR director for more information (See attached form)
