Dean's Scholarship for Educational Diversity and Excellence

The goal of the Dean’s Scholarship for Educational Diversity and Excellence is to improve educational diversity and excellence in the Graduate School of Education by recruiting, enrolling and retaining talented underrepresented minority students—in state or out-of-state—and talented international students. Each selected student, newly admitted to a master’s or a doctoral degree program, will receive a partial tuition scholarship. Diversity backgrounds include—but are not be limited to—ethnicity, class, gender, disability, sexual orientation, religion and age.
