Undergraduate Scholarships

Thanks to generous alumni and friends of the College of Education, undergraduate students received more than $327,500 in merit and need-based awards this past year.

The College of Education offers a variety of scholarships for undergraduate students. Some awards are merit-based, others are need-based, and many are available only to students who’ve chosen a particular area of study or who meet particular criteria.

In addition to the College of Education Scholarship Application, we strongly encourage students to apply for University, Federal and Texas Exes awards.
