College of Education Scholarships
Through the generosity of private donors, the College of Education provides eligible graduate and undergrad students with over 100 scholarships per academic year, ranging from $500-$3000 each, with most at the $750 level.
Larger scholarships tend to be for Art Education students, for whom there is a large endowment.
Scholarships are available to qualified graduate and undergraduate students admitted to the College of Education who have a cumulative minimum G.P.A of 3.0.
In addition, a student who has been admitted to the university, has been assigned an Access ID and whose admission to the College is pending, can still apply for College scholarships. However, it is the responsibility of the student to notify us via e-mail at email@example.com when his/her admission has been approved, or the application will not be considered. You will be asked to provide a copy of your letter of admission.
Scholarships for the 2012-13 Academic Year have already been awarded.
Scholarships are awarded only once a year (that is, there is no mid-year application process) and the cycle begins almost a year in advance of the actual distribution of the scholarship funds. This timeline is necessitated by the volume of applications received, the careful review that is given to each application by the college’s Scholarship Committee, and university requirements for awarding of scholarships.
The application process/cycle is as follows:
- Mid-September: application is accessible on the college website for scholarships for the following academic year.
- Late October: deadline for online submission of application (the exact date will be on the website)
- Late March: applicants notified via email whether or not they have been awarded a scholarship
- Early May: Scholarship awards event takes place; mandatory attendance for scholarship recipients
- August: Scholarship funds disbursed to student tuition accounts by the Wayne State University Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid
