UOTeach is committed to removing barriers and providing teacher candidates with an affordable pathway to teacher licensure and Master’s in Education teacher salary track. UOTeach is typically experienced as an intensive full-time, four term program, as such we are committed to economizing students’ tuition and maximizing campus and community resources.
We encourage applicants to be proactive and explore all available financial aid,scholarship, and funding options provided below. Our application timeline is set up to coincide with most financial aid and scholarship deadlines.
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.
Dreamer students including students who have Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) status or Temporary Protected Status (TPS) as well as other undocumented students who are ineligible to submit a FAFSA may submit an Oregon Student Aid Application (ORSAA), which is an alternative to the FAFSA.
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.
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.
We use one common application that will automatically enter you into consideration for any scholarships for which you meet selection criteria.
