Scholarship Application Process

The scholarship application will be available here in late October for current students and those admitted for Spring 2020.  New students admitted for Fall 2020 will have the opportunity to apply in April. 

Applicants must submit the College of Education scholarship application, which will be available on this page.  Applications submitted through Academic Works will not be reviewed for COE funds.

We encourage students to apply for external scholarships and grants to maximize opportunities for funding.  Deadlines vary, so start your search early.

Fall 2019 awards are still available for MIT, IDLS, and EDLS students.  Please contact Jessica Fenner (MIT) or Lauren Van Fossen (EDLS/EDLS) for an application link once you receive your admissions letter.
