Thanks to the generosity of donors, the College of Education, Health & Human Sciences (CEHHS) and its departments are able to provide scholarships to qualified graduate and undergraduate students. Below is information about the college-level process for award selection. Students are encouraged to check for opportunities at the university and departmental level as well.
All undergraduate students must complete One Stop’s Continuing Student Undergraduate Scholarship application by February 1 of each year to be considered for college-level awards. Most typically, recipients of college-level scholarships are selected by the Scholarship Selection Committee late in the spring semester and funds are distributed the following fall semester. While some scholarships are based on financial need, others reward academic excellence, professional promise, or leadership, among other factors. While CEHHS does not typically offer college-level scholarships to incoming freshmen, we strongly encourage all first-year students to apply for the university-level awards available for entering freshmen on the One Stop’s website.
CEHHS graduate students pursuing a degree in Child and Family Studies (M.S. Research & Application track, or M.S. to PhD, or PhD), Nutrition, Public Health (including the dual MS/MPH degree), and Retail, Hospitality, and Tourism Management are encouraged to complete the Graduate Scholarship Application by March 1st of each year to be considered for college-level awards. Please note that in order to complete the electronic application, students must be logged into their UT-issued Google account. Current students should be able to login using their UT NetID and password.
Students pursuing a teacher licensure program should see the information below under the “teacher licensure candidates” section. Students in all other CEHHS graduate programs should contact their respective department for information about potential scholarship opportunities.
Teacher licensure candidates are eligible to apply for specific award opportunities designed to help future teachers reach their professional goals. All applicants for these awards must first be admitted to the Teacher Education program, have completed the formal interview process, and have attended the required Intern Orientation. Further information regarding the process for applying for teacher licensure scholarships is provided to all students as a part of the Intern Orientation experience. Students are contacted about this orientation by their academic advisor in the semester prior to the start of their internship year.
Additionally, any teacher who has more than 5 years of experience teaching in a Title I school should research the U.S. Department of Education’s Teacher Licensure Loan Forgiveness program. For more information about this program, please click here.
