Two Teaching Scholarships Are Now Open For Applications

first_imgStaff ReportTheStatehouseFIle.comINDIANAPOLIS—Two scholarships for teachers are now open for applications, the Indiana Commission for Higher Education announced Wednesday.The scholarships, the Earline S. Rogers Student Teaching Stipend for Minorities and the Student Teaching Stipend for High Need Fields, are open for student teachers to apply for through Jan. 31.The Earline S. Rogers Student Teaching Stipend for Minorities are for minority teachers who will participate in student teaching or a school administration internship as part of their degree requirements. The Student Teaching Stipend for High-Need Fields is available to students planning to teach in special education or math at either the middle or high school level. Eligible students can receive up to $4,000 per stipend, or $8,000 if awarded both.Indiana Commissioner for Higher Education Teresa Lubbers said that these scholarships are being used to help college students gain experience from student teaching opportunities.“Because student teaching is critical to equipping future teachers with the tools needed for success, we hope that these stipends can help alleviate some of the costs of college,” Lubbers said in a news release.Braylen Porter was awarded both scholarships during her tenure as a sixth grade math teacher at Westlane Middle School in Indianapolis. Porter said that she advises current students to “explore their options and make sure they have a plan to be able to afford college.”“There are many financial aid opportunities out there but you have to put in the work to find them,” said Porter.For instructions on how to apply, visit is a news website powered by Franklin College journalists.FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more

Seven managers set to lose major LGPS mandates as pooling continues

first_imgBaillie Gifford, JP Morgan Asset Management (JPMAM) and Investec Asset Management all stand to lose UK local authority pension scheme mandates as the sector’s asset pool continues.LGPS Central, one of the eight asset pools formed by Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS) funds in England and Wales, this morning named Harris Associates (part of Natixis Investment Managers), Schroders and Union Investment to run an active global equity pooled fund for its clients.The pool said it expected the new Global Active Equity Multi-Manager fund to attract more than £2bn (€2.3bn) in investments when it launches later this year.However, the transition means at least seven asset managers stand to lose mandates worth hundreds of millions of pounds for some of LGPS Central’s founder members, according to data from the schemes’ 2017-18 annual reports. Several of LGPS Central’s clients are set to cut managers as they transition assets to the pool.Baillie Gifford ran a significant proportion of the Cheshire pension scheme’s estimated £775m global equity allocation as of 31 March 2018, while JPMAM managed £415m for the Staffordshire pension fund. Investec had a mandate worth £150m with the Shropshire pension fund at the end of March. Credit: Paul CosminLGPS Central’s office is in Wolverhampton, EnglandOther managers that are expected to be cut include Kempen and KBI Global Investors (both managing money for Leicestershire’s scheme), MFS (Shropshire), and Longview (Staffordshire).Harris Associates already runs money for the Shropshire Pension Fund, while Schroders has a number of equity mandates for the Nottinghamshire Pension Fund.LGPS Central said 150 fund managers from around the world “expressed an initial interest” in the Global Active Equity Multi-Manager fund.Jason Fletcher, CIO at LGPS Central, said: “After a rigorous international due diligence and selection process, we are confident that the combined blend and style of these three particular managers will assist us in meeting the investment objectives of our partner funds. We look forward to building a long-term relationship with all three of them.”The Global Active Equity Multi-Manager fund is available to LGPS Central’s nine founder members, the local authority pension funds for Cheshire, Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire, Shropshire, Staffordshire, Worcestershire, West Midlands, and the West Midlands Integrated Transport Authority.LGPS Central has £14bn under management and could run in excess of £43bn once all nine schemes’ assets are pooled.At the start of this year the company laid out plans to launch 10 funds by the end of 2018, including passive and active UK and global equity funds, and a global emerging markets fund. Next year it plans to roll out a number of pooled fixed income funds.Last week, LGPS Central chief executive Andrew Warwick-Thompson announced he was stepping down from his role after just over a year at the helm. Joanne Segars, chair of the pool, praised the work he had done to steer the company through to its launch earlier this year.last_img read more

ESL One Birmingham breaks records with ticket sales

first_imgESL One Birmingham was only announced a handful of days ago and it’s already proving to be a popular event. The very first Dota 2 Major to be hosted in the UK, it’s been made clear that it’s going to be a big one – selling over 1,000 tickets in the first five minutes of them being made available.Specific numbers haven’t been released as of yet, but it’s evident that this particular Dota 2 event is out-performing any other hosted by ESL in the past. Ulrich Schulze, SVP of Product, ESL tweeted that “no Dota 2 event has ever sold tickets faster for us than [ESL One] Birmingham. Currently discussing an adjustment of the venue and stage layout to allow more seats since we are almost at capacity already.”[email protected] fans, you are amazing, you’ve made it a historic day.#ESLOne Birmingham is officially the fastest selling ESL Dota 2 Major, EVER!Thanks to everyone who has bought tickets so far! Have you got yours? ? ?— ESL UK (@ESLUK) March 15, 2018Dota 2 was the title that was played at ESL UK’s first ever tournament, so it’s crazy to see how well it’s set to perform six years later. ESL One Birmingham will take place on May 25-27th, with 12 teams from around the world facing off against each other for two very important prizes: the $1,000,000 (£716,260) prize pool and 1,500 qualifying points for The International 2018.It was said to have been quite the battle to secure Birmingham as the location for the next Dota 2 Major, with two other ESL territories vying for the tournament to take place there. Birmingham is the UK’s second largest city by population, but it’s always overshadowed by London when esports is concerned – ESL UK will be hoping to change this when May comes round.Esports Insider says: If the news of a Dota 2 Major being hosted in the UK wasn’t enough to get you excited, then we’re sure the record-breaking ticket sales for ESL One Birmingham will do the job. It’s building up quite the buzz, and we’re sure ESL UK will prove exactly why the city is the perfect host for such a big tournament.last_img read more
