College of Education Scholarships

The College of Education offers more than $200,000 in scholarships every year. Scholarships range from $250 to $7,000 a year! This scholarship process will allow you to apply for all scholarships offered by the College of Education for which you are eligible. Online scholarship applications are due by January 30. No paper applications will be accepted.

To get started you must complete a general application. Your scholarship application is automatically applied to all general scholarships for which you qualify. From there, you may discover additional scholarship opportunities for which you may qualify. These scholarships may require you to write an additional essay or answer additional questions.
