Mississippi Institutions of Higher Learning is launching a new Teacher Education Scholars Program (TESP) that will award full scholarships to high-performing incoming college freshmen who pursue teaching careers.
TESP provides $15,000 per year, covering tuition, room, board and books for each recipient, who must agree to teach in a Mississippi public school district for at least five years. IHL Director of Communications Caron Blanton said TESP was part of Gov. Phil Bryant’s Education Works initiative, which passed during the last legislative session.
