College of Education Scholarships and Grants
The application period for College of Education Scholarships for the 2017-2018 academic year starts on January 2017 and ends in March 2017. More Details coming soon. For other grants or scholarships, refer to the details for that specific program.
Better Together Partnership Award Reception will be held on Friday, September 23, 2016.
The College of Education is privileged to award over 60 scholarships to deserving and meritorious students each year. Behind each of these scholarships is a unique and individual story. Often these scholarships represent a family or organization’s wish to honor the legacy of a colleague’s work, the life of a loved one, or their own wish to contribute in a meaningful way to their community. Regardless of the motivation of the donor, the College of Education could not continue its work of preparing future education professionals without the commitment and generosity of our donors.
Creating a Scholarship Endowment
Scholarships change lives
Without such support, many of our students would be unable to complete their teaching training program. By endowing a scholarship, you create opportunities for these students to enter the field of education. The magnitude of your gift also extends beyond our students. It touches the lives of the hundreds of children that will benefit from having this individual as a teacher, a counselor, a principal, or an education specialist.
Please consider joining the special group of individuals who endow education scholarships to help students realize their dreams.
If you would like information about creating a scholarship endowment with the College of Education, please contact Kevin Gonzalez by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone at (916) 278-6290.
