Scholarships for Master's Students
- School of Education scholarship opportunities
We select students for scholarships based on several factors, including the amount of funds available to award each year and the number of students deemed eligible to receive our support.
When making funding decisions, our scholarship review committee considers students’ demonstrated financial need as determined by the Office of Financial Aid, academic merit as determined by the program, and/or a combination of both.
The SOE endeavors to help sustain the academic excellence of the Michigan graduate community, and as such, considers students for scholarships who have demonstrated a commitment to diversity in the academic, professional, or civic realm through their work experience, volunteer engagement, or leadership of student or community organizations for our scholarship support. By commitment to diversity, we mean efforts to reduce social, educational or economic disparities among race, ethnicity or gender, or efforts to improve race relations in the U.S.
Educator Preparation Program (EPP) scholarship offers
For the 2021–22 academic year, the SOE offered scholarships to 100% of students admitted to the Master of Arts with Elementary Teacher Certification and Master of Arts with Secondary Teacher Certification programs. In-state students were offered a minimum scholarship of $11,500, and out-of-state students were offered a minimum scholarship of $25,000.
- City Year Scholars
Eligible City Year community members include currently serving corps members, senior corps members, alumni who completed a term of AmeriCorps service, and staff members employed for at least two years. During the 2020-2021 application season, each eligible City Year community member applying receives an application fee waiver. Additionally, members who are admitted after January 01, 2021 will be eligible for minimum tuition scholarships of $5,000 for in-state residents and $10,000 for out-of-state residents (up to eight eligible members across the four graduate programs).
- Rackham Merit Awards
In addition to the scholarships we offer our master’s students, we collaborate on funding packages with Rackham Graduate School. These scholarships, called Rackham Merit Awards (RMAs), assist eligible master’s students with support consisting of tuition, health and dental insurance, and a stipend.
Students do not formally apply for the RMA or any of the scholarships offered by the SOE. You will automatically be considered. The SOE provides RMAs to 2–6 students per program each academic year.

U-M Financial Aid
We encourage you to seek resources for which you may be eligible through the University of Michigan Office of Financial Aid (OFA). OFA provides information about scholarships, grants, loans, and emergency assistance, as well as work-study and other employment opportunities.
All applicants who need financial aid are encouraged to apply through OFA by completing a Free Application for Federal Student Aid and a CSS/Financial Aid Profile. Please use U-M’s federal code 002325 to complete the FAFSA and U-M’s CSS code 1839 to complete the profile. Both forms become available on October 1 every year.
