The College of Education is now accepting online applications for the College of Education Scholarships for the Fall 2017/Spring 2018 academic year. The application deadline is March 11, 2017 at 11:59 PM PST. No applications will be accepted after this date and time. If you have already applied for this, or any other scholarship within the College of Education using this on-line application this academic year, you DO NOT need to apply again. Completion of the application does not guarantee you will receive a scholarship. Scholarship awards are determined by the College of Education Scholarship and Awards Committee.
Please read all the scholarship criteria carefully and apply for only those which you are (or will be by Fall 2017) eligible for. For example: In order to qualify for a student teaching scholarship you have to plan to be enrolled in student teaching in either the Fall 2017 or Spring 2018 semesters. Thank you.
