Financial Aid & Scholarships

At the College of Education, we understand that training to become an educator often requires a full-time course load as well as a significant fieldwork commitment. There are a number of financial aid options, including loans, grants and scholarships available to make it more affordable for aspiring teachers and educators to focus on completing their training. We've included information about some of those financial aid resources here.

To learn more, please contact us or call the College of Education Student Services Center at (310) 243-3525.
