Last year (2016-2017), the COEHS awarded over $40,000 in scholarships. This year there are even more scholarships available!
Scholarships are available to all undergraduate and graduate students in the Dewar College of Education and Human Services, including Adult and Career Education, Middle Grades Education, Communication Sciences and Disorders, Psychology, and Social Work majors. Additionally, there are scholarships based on county of residence, future career path, volunteer experience, and financial need. The scholarships can cover tuition, related expenses, service opportunities, and even classroom materials!
One common application is used so students can apply to one or multiple scholarships all at once. There are 18 scholarship opportunities but students simply have to submit one application.
Note: The submitted application must have all of the areas completed (career goals, financial need, and service) even if a specific scholarship criteria does not call for one of these categories. Incomplete applications will not be forwarded to the scholarship committee for consideration.
The application deadline for scholarships to be awarded for the 2017-2018 academic year is February 15th, 2017.
