There is no limit to the number of scholarships awarded by McDaniel. The $25,000 annual scholarship (or $20,000 per year for commuter students) is renewable each year to students who maintain continuous enrollment and satisfactory academic progress.

According to McDaniel President Roger N. Casey, “McDaniel has successfully trained teachers and administrators for more than 100 years. The college also has a tradition of producing top educators, including the 2011 National Teacher of the Year Michelle Shearer. We are proud of this legacy and want to celebrate our commitment to educators by rewarding the children of elementary and secondary school employees with this scholarship.”
