Arizona's children, indeed all of American's children, deserve high quality teachers in every classroom. The academic trajectory of children who experience high quality teachers over the years is for more promising than children who do not have quality teachers. Obtaining a higher education degree has become more expensive over the years, making access more difficult for all young people who are eligible and motivated to attend college. Providing scholarships helps our excellent students cover the cost of tuition and books, thus enable them to graduate with the smallest debt load possible.
The College of Education offers a number of merit-based and need-based scholarships. By supporting this fund, you are helping us offer more scholarships this year!

Scholarship awards are $2,000 per Fellow. To honor or memorialize a loved one on an endowment basis, a gift of $53,200 will generate $2,000 annually to sustain a Fellow in perpetuity.
