Many organizations will establish private scholarships designed
specifically to encourage students to pursue programs leading to a
career in teaching. Examples include retired teacher associations and
private educational foundations. These organizations will often put out a
call for additional applications for their scholarships. In order to
provide students with the most up-to-date notification of available
scholarship opportunities the Office of Student Services utilizes the
College of Education's Facebook page to relay information. Please "Like" SDSU College of Education on Facebook to receive information regarding scholarship and aid opportunities throughout the year.
