I wrote about the TIL program here, but I wanted to provide some more information and a reminder about the upcoming deadline. The TIL is a type of scholarship/loan which is paid back with time instead of money: TIL recipients are required to pursue an educator preparation program, obtain educator licensing, and then teach in Utah public schools for a period equal to the time they received assistance.
If you know you want to teach, and you are planning to remain in Utah after graduation, this scholarship is definitely for you!
