Finding Financial Support for Your Education

Each year, the College of Education (COE) awards approximately 60 scholarships to current undergraduate and graduate students pursuing education and child and family development related degrees. While many of these scholarships are awarded on the basis of academic standing, others are determined in part by financial need, community service, leadership, major and membership in student organizations. All students must complete the FAFSA and the General and Departmental Scholarship Application to be eligible for all applicable awards.

Successful alumni, present and former faculty, and professional organizations have established scholarships, as have businesses that recruit regularly on the Missouri State campus. The generosity of these groups and individuals provides opportunities for many students in the reading, foundations and technology department.

We strongly encourage you to apply for these scholarships. Please note, when you complete the scholarship application you will be considered for EVERY scholarship for which you are eligible.

For a full listing of all available scholarships visit the College of Education scholarship page.

Graduate assistantships are offered in both administrative and academic areas and involve administrative, research and/or teaching responsibilities. Whenever feasible, the assistantship assignment is closely related to the student's program of study.
