College of Education Scholarships

General Information

The College of Education offers scholarships for entering freshmen, enrolled undergraduate and graduate students, as well as students in the COST overseas student teaching program. All applicants must be enrolled in the College of Education at the time their application is submitted. The College of Education has both needs-based and not-needs-based scholarships.

While academic merit is a factor in awarding our scholarships, only those students who have financial need will be considered for needs-based funds. Applicants who wish to be considered for needs-based scholarships must include a copy of their Student Aid Report (SAR) with their scholarship application. The SAR is received after completing a Free Application of Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Forms and information about the FAFSA are available from the UK Office of Student Financial Aid. Not-Needs-Based scholarships do not require completion of the FAFSA process, since financial need is not a factor in making these awards. Students can apply for both needs- and not-needs-based scholarships.


Education scholarships are offered for one academic year, in two equal amounts, for the fall and spring semesters. The College of Education offers several scholarships, both needs- and non needs-based. However, students need to fill out only one application to be considered for all scholarships for which they are eligible.  Scholarship and financial aid information will be available after December 5th.
