Scholarships & Fellowships

Brief Description of the College of Education Scholarships: Scholarships-At-a-Glance

You MUST use the online process to apply for all scholarships.

Please read and follow all instructions on the application to ensure proper completion. Please keep in mind that incomplete and late applications will NOT be considered. It is your responsibility to ensure that all requirements have been submitted by the deadline date.

Students who already have a UMW Foundation or College scholarship must complete the application each year to be considered for renewal. This step can also make you eligible for additional scholarship opportunities.

We have several scholarships that are “need-based”. To be eligible, you must submit a FAFSA to the Office of Financial Aid by the deadline.

College of Education Scholarship Deadline: April 30
