Student Financial Assistance
The College of Education awards more than $400,000 in scholarships to students each
year through private funding. Through this funding, we are able to provide students
the opportunity to finance their education and leave USF with not only a promising
career in education, but also with as little student debt as possible. Some scholarships
are need-based, some are merit-based; others are awarded to students studying for
a particular degree or are based on student achievements.
To learn more about scholarships available to students in the College of Education, please contact your academic advisor in Student Academic Services.
