Hi all, I've applied and been accepted to graduate programs in secondary education in physics/math. I will have a B.S. in physics by May, so the graduate degree is to give me the credentials to be certified to teach. My question is, do any of you know of scholarships or other ways that I can pay for the graduate education? While I'm totally happy with the fact that as a teacher I will likely not ever have lots of money, I also understand the math behind loans and don't want to dig too deep a hole...the programs I've applied to haven't been very helpful - most have said the aid aspect of things is the business of the financial aid department and not theirs. I've heard that some school districts will help you pay back the loan when you start teaching (even if you earned it before teaching) - can anyone confirm this? It seems to me for some odd reason there isn't much support from the actual universities for a masters of education degree, so I either grit my teeth and take the loans or find something else. Any help you all can provide would be wonderful. Thank you!
