The Applegate-Jackson-Parks Future Teacher Scholarship

The Applegate-Jackson-Parks Future Teacher Scholarship honors three Michigan public school teachers who were fired for no other reason than their refusal to pay union dues.

One $1,000 scholarship is awarded annually to the education student who best exemplifies the dedication to principle and high professional standards of Carol Applegate, Kay Jackson, and Dr. Anne Parks.

WHO MAY APPLY

Applicants are limited to graduate or undergraduate students majoring in education in institutions of higher learning throughout the United States. Officers, directors and employees of the National Institute for Labor Relations Research, the National Right to Work Committee, Members of the Selection Review Committee and their families are not eligible.

CRITERIA FOR SELECTION

The scholarship is awarded on the basis of scholastic ability and a demonstrated interest in the Institute’s work. Applicants must also:

  1. Demonstrate potential for the successful completion of the educational requirements in a college or university Department of Education program and the potential of a successful application for a teaching license; and submit a transcript of grades.
  2. Demonstrate an understanding of the principles of voluntary unionism and the problems of compulsory unionism in relation to education by writing an original essay of approximately 500 words.

SELECTION PROCESS

After an initial review of the applicants by Institute staff, a Selection Review Committee of three or more independent educators and representatives of the Institute  will review the essays and recommend the first, second and third-best essays to the NILRR Board of Directors. At its annual meeting in April, the Board will consider the recommendations of the Selection Committee and Institute staff and then make its final decision.  If, in the opinion of the Board, no applicant meets all the criteria, no recipient will be selected.

The scholarship will be paid to the institution of higher learning which the recipient plans to attend, and the recipient will be required to provide a copy of his/her transcript from that institution at the end of the academic year.

APPLICATION PROCEDURE

A total application consists of three parts:

  1.  A completed formal application;
  2.  A copy of the most up-to-date transcript of grades;
  3.  A typewritten essay of approximately 500 words clearly demonstrating an interest in, and knowledge of, the Right to Work principle as it applies to educators.

Applications must be received between October1 and December 31.
