The Barker Center for Economic Education at The University of Akron is currently seeking qualified educators who share the passion and commitment of advancing personal finance and economic education that our founder, the late Dean Barker, was so well known for. Barker Scholars participate in a collaborative cohort that meets for four on-campus workshops throughout the fall semester, focusing on best practices and research in economic education. Workshops will be facilitated by experienced faculty and scheduled during evenings or weekends.  Outside of receiving world-class instruction and classroom ready tools in personal finance and economic education, scholars can chose to receive either three graduate credit hours or a $500 stipend, upon successful completion of program requirements.  To learn more or to apply for this distinction go to Applications will be reviewed in late May, and selections will be made in early June 2015.
