Scholarships

The 2014-2015 College of Education and Health Professions scholarship application period has closed. The next opportunity to apply for our scholarships will be in January 2015. This webpage will have the application link, so check back here in January.

In awarding scholarships, the College of Education and Health Professions is guided by the wishes of the scholarship donor. The college awards a variety of undergraduate and graduate scholarships each year. Some are based on classification, merit  GPA, financial need, department or major. The amounts of these scholarships range from $100 to full tuition. The amount and the number of recipients selected to receive each scholarship vary each year based on the applicant pool.
