Scholarships & Awards

Undergraduate or Graduate Scholarships

Scholarship accounts provide financial assistance for students. Scholarships may provide assistance with tuition, tuition and fees, and/or educational costs. The scholarship may be based on academic standing, talent, and/or financial need. Other considerations such as area of concentration, residence, high school affiliation, and/or extra-curricular activities, may be taken into account. The School of Education, department or the Office of Student Financial Aid may administer scholarships.

Endowed Scholarship (minimum of $10,000)
