COLLEGE OF EDUCATION: The purpose of these scholarships is to assist upper-division undergrads as well as degree-holders who are pursuing teacher certification in science, mathematics, or engineering. These awards, between $1000 and $2500, are made possible by multiple donors in support of pre-service teachers who are committed to teaching science, mathematics, or engineering at the secondary level. Awards have differing criteria, like financial need, GPA, or having gone to high school in Texas. You are applying for multiple awards with one application. You do not have to meet all criteria in order to apply. If you are pursuing teacher certification in science, mathematics, or engineering, you should apply. The selection committee will review applications and make awards accordingly.
Students may submit the application at any time before the due date, April 15th of each spring semester. Please fill out the application, print, and send to Stephen Flynn in the College of Education. Applications are considered at the end of the spring semester before each award period. Students are notified as soon as possible.
IMPORTANT: These endowed scholarships are administered through the College of Education. If you have questions about eligibility, the application, the selection process, or distribution, please talk to Stephen Flynn in the College of Education.
COLLEGE OF NATURAL SCIENCES: The College of Natural Sciences maintains an online scholarship application site. The common application is used to award college-level scholarships as well as the Health Professions Scholarships (for pre-medical students) and Out-of-State Tuition Waivers. Check the site for the application period and more details.
