Fourteen Allen County high schoolers are the recipients of a new scholarship that helps incentivize top-performing students to pursue teaching careers in Indiana, the Indiana Commission for Higher Education has announced.

More than 600 students statewide applied for the Next Generation Hoosier Educator Scholarship, which pays $7,500 per year for up to four years to students who get their teaching license and commit to teaching in Indiana for five consecutive years. There were 200 recipients.

Of the Allen County winners, four attend Fort Wayne Community Schools.

District spokeswoman Krista Stockman said FWCS is excited about the scholarship.

"We need good people, smart people, to go into education and come back and be teachers," she said.
