Applying for COE Scholarships

Q. Where can I find the application?
A. The application is available electronically this year or you may print out the application for mail or hand delivery to the address below. Please see https://coe.uoregon.edu/scholarships/college-of-education-scholarship-application/ for application and more information.

Q. Do I have to apply individually for each COE scholarship?
A. No. Submitted applications are considered for all COE scholarships whose eligibility requirements you match. In order to assist the committee in the awards process, you may suggest up to three scholarship matches in the application. See the list of scholarships available here: https://education.uoregon.edu/sites/default/files/scholarship_list_15-16_1.pdf

Q. I have already sent my materials in with my program/department application to the college. Can you use the same items for my scholarship application?
A. No. The COE scholarship application process is separate from the process of applying to COE programs or departments. Even if some of the required materials are the same, you must apply separately to obtain scholarships and to be admitted to a program/department.

Q: Should I open my official transcripts?
A: No. Your official transcript must remain sealed and included with your application.

Q. I applied for a scholarship last year, can I request the transcripts on file be used for the current application.
A: Yes. Please indicate on the application that you would like to use transcripts on file.

Q: I attend the UO. Do I still need to include a current official UO transcript?
A: Yes. This shows your current academic standing.

Q: I attend the UO and my prior credits transferred. Do I still need transcripts from my previous college or university?
A: Only if you received a degree from the institution. Currently enrolled UO students must provide an official current UO transcript as well official degree transcripts from all institutions of higher education attended.

Q: Should my letters of recommendation come from professors?
A: We encourage you to ask instructors. However, you should choose whoever knows the most about you and your activities and can make the strongest recommendation on your behalf.

Q: Can employers, grade school teachers, etc. write letters of recommendation for me?
A: Yes, but your choice should be based on these criteria: those who know the most about you and your activities, and can make the strongest recommendation on your behalf.
