The High Needs Scholarship is available for students who start through the spring 2021 semester. Students matriculating summer 2021 and later will instead receive the SOE 50% Master’s and C.A.S. Scholarships.
The High Needs Scholarship Program assists students who enroll full-time into School of Education Master of Science (M.S.) programs in the high-needs areas of Literacy, Mathematics, Science, Inclusive Special Education and TELL. The High Needs Scholarship Program offers eligible graduate students funding covering 25% of the student’s tuition to help fund professionals in these critical areas.
Eligible students are contacted each semester by email and/or letter. If you have any questions or concerns about the High Needs Scholarship, please contact Speranza Migliore.
Scholarships are awarded and credited to student bursar accounts typically within two weeks after the University financial drop deadline and before the first billing statement for that semester is sent out. There will be no cash refunds or payouts. The scholarship does not cover tuition for undergraduate courses, even if required as a prerequisite condition of full admission into the master’s program. The value of the High Needs Scholarship is based on the tuition for the total number of credit hours for which the student is registered minus the value of any outside scholarships/funding.
