Bringing the best and brightest to the College of Education

Scholarships can make all the difference in choosing a university. This year, we’re raising funds to recruit talented students from every background to the College of Education. Gifts in support of recruitment scholarships provide flexible funding that can open the door to higher education or convince a student to choose the UO over another university. With your help, we can bring the best and the brightest of the next generation to the College of Education. 

Recruitment scholarships allow us to: 

  • Offer a more competitive scholarship package to the most promising incoming students 
  • Provide more opportunities to talented students from diverse backgrounds  
  • Fill gaps in funding for students who otherwise wouldn’t be able to study at the College of Education

In the last year we’ve faced unexpected challenges – but our challenge gift donors have dedicated over $125,000 for Ducks Give 2021 in support of scholarships and programs at the COE. Their generosity is an inspiration to reach even farther. Help us unlock our challenge gifts by donating and spreading the word – you can make dreams come true for our future educators, researchers, and clinicians. 

You can help us reach our goal of 100 donors by making a gift in support of Ducks Give, and by inviting your family and friends to make a gift. Thank you for your generosity!
