The Guardian Teacher Scholarship is an opportunity to encourage
and support former foster care youth to pursue careers in
teaching in California. Scholarships will help UC Davis prepare
qualified students to be the knowledgeable, thoughtful teacher
leaders of tomorrow. Funds will specifically support student
tuition and fees associated with studying and preparing to be
teachers through the UC Davis School of Education Teacher
Credential/Master of Arts Program.
In the last ten years, hundreds of School of Education students
have received the generous support of scholarships funded by
gifts from alumni and friends. Some recipients shared their

“My life experiences (as a former foster child) are the root of
my passion to help students who are underrepresented due to
poverty and cultural barriers. No words can truly describe my
gratitude and appreciation for (this) generous gift … it has
helped alleviate a lot of financial stress. I have never felt so
special and honored in my life.”
To commemorate the UC Davis School of Education’s tenth
anniversary, we are launching the Power of 10 Scholarship Fund to
support all students at the School of Education. Gifts collected
this year will be immediately put to work providing scholarship
funds to students with the greatest financial need in the 2013-14
academic year. Let’s create a tradition of giving back together
while supporting our next generation of education leaders. Gifts
will be accepted throughout the 2012-13 academic year.
