Scholarships for Education Students

Scholarships, in the form of tuition assistance, are available to students preparing to become Early Childhood Educators, Elementary Classroom Teachers, Secondary Classroom Teachers in all subject fields, and candidates for graduate degrees or advanced teaching licenses. 
Scholarships may cover the cost of a single course or an entire academic year. Amounts range form $300 to $2,500. 

You are eligible for consideration for a departmental scholarship as soon as you have met all requirements for formal admission to the Professional Teacher Education program. Scholarships are awarded on the basis of both academic excellence and financial need. Applications are considered by the Department Scholarship Committee each spring for the following academic year.
