Scholarships for Current CEHHS Students
The following scholarships are available exclusively to current College of Education, Health, and Human Services students. To apply for these scholarships, please visit the UM-Dearborn Office of Financial Aid and submit an application by February 1.
Eligibility: College of Education, Health, and Human Services non-resident graduate students with an initial minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0 (4.0 scale). Continuing students must have a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.2 (4.0). Students must be enrolled for at least 6 credits hours per semester (3 credit hours in the summer or final semester of the program). Student academic record must be free of academic misconduct.
The Non-Resident Graduate Tuition Scholarship covers 80% of the difference between the resident and non-resident graduate tuition rate. This scholarship is renewable in subsequent terms, up to the number of credits in the student’s degree program. You may be eligible for a non-resident graduate tuition scholarship if you meet the award criteria. Newly admitted CEHHS graduate students are automatically considered for this award so no separate application is needed.
This scholarship is awarded for consecutive fall and winter terms and the initial amount displayed in the student portal assumes a 6-credit hour registration. If a student enrolls in additional credit hours, an additional amount will be disbursed at the term’s drop/add deadline.
Scholars may elect to use the scholarship during the summer term. However, a separate Summer Financial Aid application must be submitted. You can learn more about this scholarship on the Office of Financial Aid’s Non-Resident Graduate Tuition Scholarship page.
Eligibility: College of Education, Health, and Human Services students.
This endowed scholarship was established by alumni Dr. Carole A. Fielek and Mr. Anthony C. Fielek to encourage continued progress toward a degree in the College of Education, Health, and Human Services (CEHHS). Awards will be based on merit and need.
Eligibility: Master of Education in Special Education students (Learning Disabilities or Emotional Impairments endorsement options only) with a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.5 (4.0 scale) and having completed 10 credits in the program.
Scholarship is funded through the generous gifts by alumni and friends of the University of Michigan-Dearborn College of Education, Health, and Human Services. Scholarship supports master’s level study in special education.
