MENUMENU

SOE Endowed Scholarships

The School of Education offers several competitive endowed scholarships and prizes. Established by and named after individuals who care deeply about the School of Education, these donors are SOE alumni who either were beneficiaries of financial support when attending the SOE, or their gift was made to honor the memory of a loved one. School of Education students can apply for and receive as many of the scholarships listed for which they fit the criteria!

  • Students are required to apply separately for School of Education Endowed Scholarships – they are not included in the admissions process. 
  • Scholarships are only open to School of Education students; with the exception of the Burton Blatt Scholarship, all scholarships are open to graduate students only.
  • Selections are based on a student’s match with a donor’s criteria.
  • Approximately 15% of School of Education students will receive support through one of these scholarships, either tuition credits (3-8 credits) or monetary awards.
