No paper applications will be accepted.

      • Provide information regarding your professional goals.
      • Explain why you believe you should be a scholarship recipient.
  • If you are awarded a scholarship, you are required to attend the College of Education Scholarship Recipient and Donor Recognition Ceremony. This event is held at the beginning of every fall semester and scholarship recipients will be notified of the date.

Scholarships are available for incoming students, undergraduates, graduates, and doctoral students seeking degrees in Education. College of Education Scholarships are credited directly to the student’s fee bill from the Cashier’s Office. Half of the scholarship will be awarded in fall and half will be awarded in spring. If the student does not attend ECU for the following academic year, the scholarship must be forfeited.

All applicants who submitted a complete application will be notified of their application status in April after the scoring and selection process is complete.

Ready to apply?

The College of Education Scholarship system has been merged with the university system, so all scholarships can be accessed from one location, using your PirateID. We hope that you take some time to fill out an online scholarship application.
