Financial aid and scholarships

Your education is about your future — let us invest in you.

The College of Education awards hundreds of scholarships each year to undergraduate and graduate students alike, thanks to the generosity of private donors. To be considered for these scholarships, applicants must have an undergraduate GPA of at least 2.5 or a graduate GPA of at least 3.0. Some scholarships are reserved specifically for students with demonstrated financial need. To qualify for these scholarships, applicants must have a current FAFSA on file with the university.

How to Apply

The annual application period for private scholarships is Oct. 1 through March 1, and the application can be accessed through AcademicWorks. Your application will be considered for private aid through both the College of Education and the Office of Student Financial Aid. Please note: AcademicWorks does not replace the FAFSA.

The College of Education Dean's office is pleased to announce funding available for College of Education doctoral students' research projects. Applications of up to $1,000 will be accepted on a rolling basis. Students are eligible for one award per 12-month period.
