College of Education Scholarships and Funding

 

Finanical Aid

Many of our scholarships are based on financial need, so it is important for you to complete the Free Application for Student Financial Aid (FAFSA) by the federal deadline.

Submit the University of Oregon as your university of choice. Our code is 003223.

International students and those not able to file a FAFSA are eligible for College of Education scholarships and, while not required, are encouraged to establish financial need by submitting a financial resources form to the Office of International Affairs.

Scholarships

We provide a number of scholarship and funding opportunities in an effort to offer students support in pursuing their degrees and professional futures by removing as many barriers to those goals as possible.

Please see the list below for scholarships available to any College of Education student at the junior to doctorate level.

We use one common application that will automatically enter you into consideration for any and all scholarships for which you meet selection criteria.

If selected, scholarship recipients must:

  • Maintain good academic standing
  • Serve as representatives of the college
  • Meet with the dean, development officer, and scholarship committee as requested
  • Maintain contact with living donor (if applicable)

Students currently applying for a COE academic program, but not yet accepted at the time of the deadline, should still submit their scholarship application for consideration, pending acceptance into the program. Scholarship decisions will be made prior to the end of March.

Apply for Scholarships

The number of recipients and amount of each financial award often varies from year to year, but most awards range from $1,500 to $10,000 each year.

Total student financial support in the previous academic year was $670,000.
