Scholarships & Financial Aid

The College of Education provides both academic and funding support for its graduate students. Funding options can include tuition awards, scholarships and federal aid.

Education Tuition Award

The Education Tuition Award provides financial support to qualified, full-time graduate students. You must submit a complete application for admission by the deadline and be admitted into a graduate program to be considered for these awards. Funding offers might include a tuition award and an offer of graduate student employment.

College of Education Scholarships

A limited number of College of Education scholarships are available each academic year for newly accepted and currently enrolled students. They are awarded by invitation and are based on academic merit and financial need. Filing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) puts you in the running for these awards; if you are deemed eligible, you will be invited to apply.
