Scholarships and Grants

Students at Graduation Ceremony

College can be expensive – which is why we offer generous scholarships to high achieving students. Scholarships are based on academic merit and do not need to be repaid. The USF College of Education is proud to award more than $400,000 in scholarships to our students each year through private funding.

Students seeking financial assistance to pay for their education may also qualify for grants. Grants are need based money that does not have to be repaid, and are funded by Federal, state or institutional resources.
