Support student emergency needs
Each year, The College of Education and Human Ecology (EHE) awards scholarships to our undergraduate and graduate students through an annual scholarship selection process. These funds are critical to ensuring that outstanding students are able to pursue their studies, regardless of their ability to pay. Last year, through the generosity of donors, EHE awarded more than $1.4 million in scholarships. This year, COVID-19 has created unprecedented challenges for our students, dramatically increasing the number of individuals who need extra support.
You can ensure students will complete their degrees by giving to the Education and Human Ecology Student Aid Scholarship Fund, which provides financial assistance on a case-by-case basis at the discretion of the college’s dean. The fund ensures deserving students have access to higher education, setting them on a path to become change-makers in their chosen fields.
Your generosity will provide assistance for anything from tuition and fees to housing and unexpected expenses such as medical bills, loss of items from theft or fire, loss of housing and recovery costs from an illness or accident.
As recent EHE graduate Peter Kopecheck (B.S. Special Education, 2020) explains, “it’s not just about financial support, but the responsibility and trust.”
Students who benefit from the EHE Student Aid Scholarship Fund are deeply grateful for the support they receive and the responsibility you entrust them with. With your help, we can ensure that a high-quality EHE education is within their reach.
