Thank you for visiting the Eastern Illinois University Education Scholars Program website. The Education Scholars Program is a special program to recognize and support students who are pursuing a major leading to teacher licensure and have exhibited academic excellence during their high school and/or collegiate career. Recognition as an Education Scholar signifies to the University Community and potential employers a commitment to academic excellence and the teaching profession. It is truly something of which to be proud.

If you are an incoming student or an EIU student who is not yet a member I hope that you will consider joining us and become part of this fun and exciting program. If you are a parent, past scholar, or current scholar I hope that you will stop by often and see what is happening.

If you have any questions about the program please do not hesitate to contact me. I am very proud of the program and its students and would be more than happy to share more information.

Best wishes,

Dr. Doug Bower
Associate Dean and Coordinator of the Education Scholars Program
