Attention paraprofessionals: get your teaching degree at WGU Texas while still working

Houston ISD and WGU Texas have partnered to offer HISD paraprofessionals the opportunity to earn their teaching degree while still working. The $4,000 HISD Paraprofessional Scholarship is available to current and prospective WGU Texas students who want to earn a bachelor’s degree in education (it expires on May 22, 2022), adding to the current five-percent tuition reduction HISD employees already receive.

WGU Texas will hold one final information session to learn more about WGU Texas’s Teachers College and programs, affordable tuition, and exciting scholarship. The district’s WGU representative will be available online during the entire four hours. Click on this link to email Kathy Hietala to register: WGU Scholarship Opportunity.
