THE DAVID AUGUSTA UNIT SCHOLARSHIPS
David Augusta was a lifelong passionate member for public education and served ECOEA as President and Executive Director. David also served on the OEA Board of Directors representing ECOEA and as an NEA Director. David retired from Louisville City Schools and continued his career as an educator at Stark State College. David was instrumental in establishing the Unit Scholarships so it is a fitting memorial that they be named in his honor.
The Unit Scholarship Drawing will be held at an ECOEA meeting and announced at the ECOEA Fall Delegate Briefing on November 18. Three scholarships (one from each of the three ECOEA voting units) of $500 will be awarded. The winners must certify the scholarship will be used for continuing education not covered by their local school district, and documentation submitted by August 31, 2024. The scholarship is by reimbursement when the documentation is submitted.
The deadline to apply is November 1, 2023, at this link:
Previous Unit Scholarship winners are ineligible to participate in any future Unit Scholarship lotteries per ECOEA policy.
