Six scholarships at $2000 each will be awarded. This scholarship recognizes academic performance and potential for making a significant contribution to the field of education and human development for students in the college's advanced study programs (M.Ed./professional studies, M.A., M.S.W., Spec. Cert., Ed.D., and Ph.D.). Note: Students pursuing initial teaching licensure are not eligible for this scholarship.
The applicant must have been admitted to an advanced study program, and at time of application, earned a minimum of 9 credits within that program, have a minimum GPA of 3.0, and be a full-time enrolled student when the scholarship is awarded (total amount split between Fall 2018 and Spring 2019 semesters).
The Larry Wilson Scholarship will be awarded for the 2018-19 academic year.
One scholarship of $1500 will be awarded. This scholarship recognizes a student who has demonstrated an interest in, and involvement with, non-school-based education. The applicant must be a undergraduate or graduate student in the College of Education and Human Development with a stated career objective related to a non-school-based educational setting (business, professional organization, public agency, nonprofit organization). The applicant must be a full-time enrolled student when the scholarship is awarded.
Undergraduate applicants must have a minimum 3.0 GPA and have earned a minimum of 15 credits at time of application.
Graduate applicants must have a minimum 3.0 GPA and have earned a minimum of 9 credits at time of application.

12 scholarships of $4000 each will be awarded. The Promise of Tomorrow Scholarship recognizes academic performance and potential for making a significant contribution to the field of education and human development for a CEHD undergraduate student or a student enrolled in the college's initial teacher licensure program (undergraduate or master's).
To be eligible, students must be enrolled in the college's initial teacher licensure program in 2018-2019 or undergraduate students who are recent transfers to CEHD or who will be transferring to CEHD for 2018-2019. The applicant must have earned a minimum of 15 credits at time of application, have a minimum GPA of 3.0 and be a full-time student when the scholarship is awarded.
Three scholarships of $2000 each will be awarded. This scholarship is open to all undergraduate applicants in CEHD who are currently enrolled as full-time students in a degree-seeking program, have a minimum 3.0 GPA, and are participating in an approved 2018 University of Minnesota study abroad program of three weeks or more (15 study or school days), to earn at least 3 credits. This scholarship is specifically targeted at individuals who identify as first-generation college students (parents/guardian did not complete a four-year degree).
Students must take part in the study abroad program prior to their graduation clearance (i.e. students applying for clearance at the end of spring semester would not be eligible to receive their scholarship for a study abroad in May session or summer sessions).
