Scholarship and Excellence Awards

Scholarship & ExcellenceThe best of the best!

The College of Education will once again honor those who embody scholarship and excellence. 

While plans are still being finalized, this event will return in Spring 2023.

The Scholarship & Excellence Awards gives the College of Education the opportunity to recognize the achievements of students, educators, and public servants through the Advocate for Education Award, the Champion of Sport & Health Award, the Miller-Manchester Mentor Teacher of the Year Award, and the Ferrucci Distinguished Educator Award.

We also use this time to honor and thank our scholarship stewards for their gifts to the College of Education. The scholarships they have established provide scholarships to undergraduate and graduate students of all majors within the college. Now perhaps more than ever, these scholarships help alleviate the financial burdens of pursuing a college education.

Finally, we invite all students who were awarded College of Education scholarships for the current school year to recognize their strong academic performance and contributions to their communities on and off campus.

They said it…

This event is a lot of fun. As a student who was a scholarship recipient, it was neat to be recognized for that, but it was even better and more meaningful to be able to sit down with the person who entrusted me with that gift and be able to thank them face to face. It meant a lot to me.
