In 2015, the AERA Foundation awarded nine $2000 scholarships to active educators who are also AEA members. One recipient is chosen from each of AERA’s  nine districts. A total of 173 scholarships have been awarded since the program began in 1991. Also, non-certified personnel are eligible to participate in the scholarship program to receive assistance in obtaining certification. Eric Bryant, teacher at Gadsden City High School, received the scholarship for District Two. Congratulations to Eric!
