Warner Offers New Scholarships to UR Undergrads

The Warner School of Education is pleased to support the University of Rochester undergraduate community by making 20 new scholarships available to 2009 graduating seniors. During the upcoming year, scholarships will be awarded to qualified seniors who are interested in pursuing graduate study at the Warner School. These Warner scholarships, available to applicants for master’s programs in teaching and curriculum, counseling, higher education, educational policy, and human development, will cover 50 percent of tuition costs for qualified students graduating May 2009.

At Warner, we realize graduating seniors face a potentially challenging job market ahead. The University has long been committed to attracting the best and the brightest to the educating profession, and through these scholarships we are not only able to provide financial assistance to students, but we’re also able to invest in the University’s talented pool of students as we prepare the next generation of educators.

Candidates must meet the standard Warner School selection criteria and must apply by the February 1 or April 1, 2009 admissions deadlines. A complete list of the Warner School’s application materials can be found at www.rochester.edu/Warner/admissions.

Additional scholarship opportunities, including the Fifth Year in Teaching scholarships and Robert Noyce scholarships, are available to University of Rochester undergraduates for graduate study at the Warner School. The Fifth Year in Teaching Scholarship program offers full tuition, room and board to select students pursuing teaching careers in urban schools and the Robert Noyce Scholarship program offers full tuition to up to 10 students per year who have a degree in math or science.
