Each year the Department of Special Education awards a number of scholarships to deserving undergraduate students.

How to Apply

Applications are made available early in the spring semester and are awarded at the annual awards banquet, usually held in mid-April. Announcements will be made and notices will be posted when applications are available so that all special education students have a chance to apply.

Students can apply for as many scholarships as they meet the criteria for. However, an individual can be awarded only one of these scholarships.

The source of the scholarships and the amount of the awards vary from year to year. Some of the commonly awarded scholarships are listed below.
