When can I fill out my scholarship application?Accordion Closed
The application opens to students in January every year. To start your application, please visit our scholarship application page.
How do I apply for more than one College of Education scholarship?Accordion Closed
You only need to fill out one application to be considered for all available College of Education scholarships. Apply for an Northern Arizona University Foundation Scholarship on the Foundation’s website. Additional scholarships available to Northern Arizona University students can be found on the Office of Financial Aid website.
I don’t have an NAU login. Can I still apply for a COE scholarship?Accordion Closed
If you would like to apply for a College of Education scholarship but have not yet been assigned an NAU login, please email the Scholarship Committee office for further instructions.
When do I find out if I have been awarded a scholarship?Accordion Closed
Scholarship award letters are sent out after the Scholarship Committee meets in the spring of each year. Find more scholarship award information on our scholarships page.
Why do I have to complete my FAFSA so early to be considered for a scholarship?Accordion Closed
Some scholarships are awarded based on financial need. You must fill out your FAFSA application to determine whether you qualify for need-based scholarships. To qualify for ANY COE Scholarship, you must complete your FAFSA, REGARDLESS OF NEED.
What should I put in my letter?Accordion Closed
This student letter is a critical component of your application. Please visit our scholarships information webpage for more information.
Does completing the COE application automatically qualify me for other university-wide scholarships?Accordion Closed
No, if you want to be considered for other scholarships outside the College of Education, you will need to fill out their applications.
If I have a tuition waiver am I still eligible for scholarships?Accordion Closed
Yes, though your application would not be considered a high priority for award.
How do I apply for a tuition waiver?Accordion Closed
Each department handles tuition waivers differently. For more information, contact your department directly.
If I miss the submission date, is there any way I can be considered for a scholarship?Accordion Closed
No, however you might wish to look for applications that are still open. Often the financial aid application is open longer than the College of Education scholarship application.
What happens to scholarships that are not accepted or given out?Accordion Closed
The committee creates a back-up list at the time the awards are made, and scholarships are offered to the next student on that list until it is accepted. If there are no applicants who qualify for a specific scholarship, those funds are either put back into principal to build the endowment or held over to award the next year.
Can you help with technical difficulties while submitting my application?Accordion Closed
For assistance, please send an email to the development team.
