Awards are based on a combination of academic merit, professional promise, financial need, and academic or professional recommendation. Preference is given to individuals who will be in an internship (minimum of at least three credits) that prohibits other employment. Scholarship applications are due March 1. The SEHD scholarship committee meets in mid-March to score applications and award funding to eligible applicants. Decision letters are mailed in early April if you are an accepted or matriculated student. Admission applicants will not receive a response until an admission decision has been made.
Students are eligible to apply if they have submitted an admission application, have been accepted into, or are matriculated in a SEHD graduate program. You must enroll in at least six (6) graduate-level credits during each semester in which you receive scholarship funds. Exception to this rule is done on a case-by-case basis.
