Assistantships & Financial Aid

Finding the funding to pursue your education shouldn’t be stressful. The STEM department is dedicated to helping you achieve success during your graduate time with us. That includes helping you find the funding necessary to pursue education and research full-time. Through the ongoing support of corporations and friends of the College of Education, we are able to offer a limited number of scholarships to our incoming STEM students, as well as assistantship opportunities.

Recurring Scholarships

Scholarship amounts range from $500 to $5,000 and are only for students who are currently enrolled in or have been admitted to the College of Education by a select date each semester.  Notification about the availability of scholarships and the scholarship application process will also be posted for current/continuing undergraduate and graduate students in the College of Education.


Another valuable form of financial assistance for students in good academic standing is through a graduate assistantship. Typically through part-time employment within the STEM department, students are able to earn a stipend or tuition remission in exchange for assisting a faculty member, the department or the College of Education.
