Financial Aid & Scholarships
School of Education Scholarships
The School of Education awards scholarships to education students on an annual basis. The list of available scholarships is published here in February, with a deadline in March.
Education students are welcome to apply for as many scholarships for which they qualify. The scholarship application is available here. Scholarship recipients will receive their funds in the fall semester at the annual awards dinner. Awards typically range from $500-$1000.
You may be eligible for Federal Student Aid; submit a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to learn more.
You may be eligible for loan forgiveness for your service as a teacher.
Learn more about aid from the University of Colorado Boulder’s Office of Financial Aid. The department’s website contains information on how to apply for financial aid, as well as scholarship resources.
All students are encouraged to apply for need-based financial aid. The funds available to the University are determined by the number of applicants. The Office of Financial Aid in conjunction with the Graduate School awards financial aid in the form of grants and work-study jobs on the basis of both need and merit criteria.
Due to limited funding sources, we cannot offer funding packages to Master’s students through the School of Education.
Financial support is awarded on a competitive basis, as part of the admissions process. Most students who are admitted receive support in the form of funding packages that include tuition, an allowance for health insurance, and some combination of first-year fellowships and/or graduate assistantships.
