School of Education Scholarships

Any student can apply for School of Education Scholarships using one application. The disbursement of funds will depend on your program route and duration. Awards for undergraduates have already been made for the 2024-25 academic year.

The scholarship application for graduate students who have not received an award for 2024-25 will open in Autumn 2024. Students should be able to demonstrate financial need and elaborate on their position as outlined in the application. 

Required criteria for application:

  • For undergraduates: be admitted to the School of Education as a teacher certification candidate
  • For graduate students: be admitted to a School of Education graduate degree or certification program
  • Be enrolled at least half time each quarter during the academic year
  • Maintain all student requirements for continuation in the program

Some donors have established funds with the following additional criteria for qualifying applicants:

  • Students working in state-approved Christian schools
  • Students from an under-represented ethnic minority group

The School of Education Scholarship Committee awards scholarships based on available funds, which varies from year to year. Students may receive only one award per academic year. Exceptions to the allocation schedule are handled on a case-by-case basis. Contact the Associate Director for Graduate Programs with any questions.
