The Massachusetts Educational Recruiting Consortium (MERC) will give out four $500 dollar awards to an educator who will begin his/her professional career in the Fall immediately following our annual event. We will consider teachers, counselors and/or administrators for these awards.
The applicants must attend a college or university that holds membership in MERC. This award will acknowledge the professional aspirations of an outstanding educator, counselor and/or administrator as well as provide financial assistance to the new professional.
