The School of Education (SOE) administers two types of scholarship awards annually. These awards, most of which are donor supported, range from $500 to $10,000 per year and are applied to tuition expenses. Students are selected by program faculty and department admission review committees to receive scholarships based on a review of a candidate‚Äôs admission application and strength of his or her statement. Scholarships are limited, and funding is up to the discretion of each program or department.
