The Elliott Exemplary Student Teacher scholarship is given each year to a credential student who is nominated by their department Chair. After an obervation and interview process, the winner is announced, and is awarded $4,000 toward their tuition for a master's degree.
The F. George Elliott Scholarship Fund is an endowment of over $250,000 to the Sonoma State University School of Education. The endowment each year will award two scholarships for graduate study at Sonoma State University; one is for an outstanding student teacher, and the other is for a Santa Rosa City School middle school, junior high, or high school teacher. Recipients of these scholarships will be known as Elliott Scholars.
Professor George Elliott worked for many years supervising student teachers in middle schools and junior and senior high schools in the Santa Rosa City School District. He was dedicated to quality teacher education, and worked closely with many master teachers and school administrators in Santa Rosa schools to achieve that end.
