College of Education and Health Professions


Scholarships for undergraduate and graduate students in the College of Education and Health Professions are made possible by generous gifts from our College’s donors. The criteria for each scholarship is guided by the wishes of the donor, and may include academic merit, financial need, department or major, interests, organizational involvement, and classification. Because most COEHP scholarships are one-year awards, all current and prospective students are encouraged to apply each year.

The 2015-2016 Scholarship application period is now closed.

After Feb. 15, applications will be read by faculty members, and committees will meet to make their selections. Recipients will be notified by email in April.

Awards are contingent on continued full-time enrollment in the same degree program, and compliance with other requirements that will be detailed on this page before notifications are sent.
