MCE Grants and Scholarships
Morgridge College of Education (MCE) awards more than $10 million annually in student financial support which includes Dean’s Scholarship awards, named merit scholarships, GTA and GRA appointments, and grants and fellowships. Unlike student loans, you do not have to repay these awards. MCE financial aid is managed by the MCE Financial Aid office.
You are considered for most MCE funded scholarships at the time of admittance. There is no additional application required. MCE Dean’s Scholarships are awarded to incoming scholars based on academic merit and can be awarded for one year or up to three years in some degree programs. MCE also has over 40 donor-funded merit scholarships that are awarded to outstanding scholars at the time of admittance. Awards can range from $1,000 per year up to a fully funded scholarship that pays the entire tuition cost for the degree program.
There are a limited number of competitive MCE merit scholarships offered. These have unique eligibility criteria and rolling selection and award periods.
MCE encourages all students to actively pursue opportunities to present their scholarly research at conferences at DU, nationally, and internationally and provides Miller Scholarship funding to support travel and presentation costs. Doctoral students who have successfully defended their dissertation proposal may be eligible for dissertation grant funding support with the approval of their advisor.
