The Kitty Green and Hobart Jones Scholarship for Inquiry Teaching and Cooperative Learning provides financial support for students in the Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) program. Green, who earned an MAT at Mary Baldwin in 2000 after a successful business career, considered her all-too-brief stint as a teacher the most rewarding experience in her life. She died of ovarian cancer in 2002.
In addition to being enrolled full-time in Mary Baldwin’s Master of Arts in Teaching program, applicants should meet the following criteria:
- Career switcher with a minimum of five years in a career other than education
- Passion for inquiry-based and cooperative learning in public schools
- Financial need
- Desire to teach Pre-K through grade 8 in a public school

Dean, College of Education
Applicants will be asked to submit an essay on the value of inquiry-based teaching and cooperative learning by April 21. A faculty committee reviews applicants and award recipients are announced prior to the end of spring semester.
