In the 2018-19 academic year, the College of Education awarded $362,532 in donor supported scholarship funds to 135 CED students. Many of these students were honored and recognized, along with their donors, at the annual College of Education Scholarship Reception held last October.
The Scholarship Reception, an important celebration for student recipients and their families, shines a light on the students, their accomplishments, as well as our generous donors. Over the course of the evening, the donors and recipients have a chance to get to know each other to see and share the impact each scholarship has made. Along with celebrating the generosity of the present donors, the event takes the time to honor and remember the legacy donors who bequeathed a scholarship in their estate.
A major benefactor, SchoolsFirst Federal Credit Union, which has generously contributed $500,000 over five years to support the clinical residency models in the UTEACH and the Urban Dual Credential Program, was acknowledged through video amplifying the essential support they provide through stipend funds.

These life-changing scholarships are not possible without the College’s generous donors. As noted by Dean Pavri, “We know that it takes a village to prepare an excellent educator, and feel extremely fortunate to have so many kind and generous friends and donors who support our students and programs. Thanks to your support, the College has been increasing our scholarships each year.”
Since 2015, the CED has increased scholarship support for students by 72%; that percentage is expected to go up considerably in the 2019-20 academic year with six new named scholarships, including the Kenneth “Wayne” Scott Memorial Endowed Award, Linna Young Memorial Scholarship, Linna Young Memorial Endowed Scholarship, Mory Ouk Endowed Educational Award, Teacher Librarian Scholarship in Memory of Barbara Ward, and the Warne Scholars in Special Education.
The deadline to apply for 2019-20 scholarships is coming up on February 15, 2019. Students are encouraged to apply by completing a single online application that will allow them to be considered for multiple scholarships, in the college and across the University, based on eligibility.

Speaking to the scholarship recipients, Dean Pavri said, “We know that for many of you, these scholarships are integral to whether or not you can complete your academic programs.” This important impact can only be made through the generosity of our donors.
