Online applications for College of Education scholarships are now being accepted for the Fall 2016 term. According to Betsy Hull, assistant to the dean, the college this year has over 60 named scholarships available to undergraduate and graduate students in amounts ranging from $500 to $5,000. “Every department in the college
offers scholarships, so students should check for college and departmental scholarships when they apply,” she says, adding that most of the scholarships do not require letters of reference or a minimum GPA.
Since the adoption of the online application process in the College of Education, the annual number of applicants increased from 345 in 2012-2013 to 515 in 2015-2016. The total dollar amount of scholarships increased from $105,000 to $175,000.
