The School of Education and Syracuse University want to help all students succeed, including finding ways to pay for their education. A wide range of opportunities for financial aid, awards, scholarships, stipends, grants, and fellowships are available for School of Education students. Our Office of Academic and Student Services is here to help you with any questions or help you need in finding funding and supports.
The largest source of financial aid for students is Syracuse University scholarships and grants. In addition, Syracuse University participates in the Federal Direct Student and Parent Loan programs. The Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships can assist students and parents throughout the financial aid process. Financial Aid professionals are available to address your questions, offer options for payment, assist in filing student loan and grant applications, assist with the application process, and suggest financial planning options.
The School of Education offers several competitive scholarships for students based on their backgrounds or educational and career goals. Approximately 15% of School of Education students will receive one of these scholarships. These scholarships are specific to the School of Education and must be applied for each year. Scholarship deadlines are typically January 15 for the following fall semester.
The School of Education is proud to support master’s degree students starting select master’s degrees in summer 2019 or later. These scholarships and other funding sources cover 60-75% of the total tuition cost for each degree, offering educational opportunity for more students at Syracuse.
Please Note: students who receive this funding are not eligible for any additional School of Education Scholarships (except for the SUITR program, where students are eligible for a 25% SU-SOE Scholarship). Funding will be offered to eligible students in their admission packet. Students must be formally admitted and matriculate during or after summer 2019, and maintain satisfactory academic progress toward that degree specified on each program page. Students who return their acceptance of the scholarship are automatically credited the amount of the scholarship for each semester of full-time study to their bursar account; there will be no cash refunds or payouts. Students may not use vouchers for the remaining tuition cost, and scholarships do not cover tuition for undergraduate courses even if required as a prerequisite condition of full admission into the master’s program.
School of Education undergraduate and graduate students who are interested in study abroad can apply for the Himan Brown Fellowship, which can cover expenses for semester programs and short-term trips.
These funding sources are not endorsed by the School of Education, but are provided as examples of places our students have found success receiving funding. Individual School of Education programs may list additional suggested funding sources for their specific content area.
