iModules Scholarship Program

iModules is proud to be able to give back to our clients and the communities they serve by helping students with their academic pursuits. Now in its eighth year, the iModules Scholarship Program annually provides individual financial scholarships to students enrolled in secondary or higher education institutions that are current iModules clients. This year we are awarding even more scholarships.

15 scholarships will be awarded in the amount of $1,500 for the 2015-2016 school year. Application Deadline is April 1, 2015.

Students must meet the minimum qualification to be eligible for a scholarship:

  • Full-time student for the Fall 2014 semester
  • Attending or will be attending a school that is an iModules client for Fall 2014
  • A minimum “C” grade point average

The initial account creation process takes less than 30 minutes. After the initial account creation, students will be asked to 1.) submit an application, and then 2.) submit an essay. The essay is based on two questions, and we ask that they answer the questions in less than 250 words each. The entire process is done online using Encompass tools. Visit to read the essay questions and learn more about the program.

Lasallian Educator Fellowship Program

The Lasallian Educator Fellowship Program is a collaboration between Saint Mary's College (SMC), Kalmanovitz School of Education and the District of San Francisco New Orleans.  Its purpose is to prepare quality educators for our Lasallian schools.  Saint Mary's College's commitment to furthering the Catholic Lasallian mission is at the heart of this program.

This fellowship program is designed for Saint Mary's graduates whose vocation is to become an educator (teacher, counselor and/or administrator), for other college graduates who aspire to become Lasallian educators, and to non-credentialed personnel who serve in Lasallian schools.

Saint Mary's offers this tuition-free credential program (Lasallian Fellowship) in exchange for three years of  salaried service at one of the Lasallian Catholic schools.
