MIT Diversity Endowed Scholarship

This scholarship is designed to provide financial support to an individual or individuals (depending on need) from underrepresented groups so that they may complete the College of Education's Master in Teaching program.  First awarded in 2008, the scholarship helps expand MIT recruitment of promising students of diverse backgrounds.  This scholarship will increase the number of diverse student teachers in the MIT program, helping to ensure that the most promising MIT students from underrepresented groups have an opportunity to receive an excellent Jesuit education at Seattle University.

Amount Awarded: Ranges between $2,000 -$7,000

Duration: One year

Application Deadline: Feb. 1 for Fall cohort and Oct. 1 for Spring cohort

Criteria for Selection:

  • The scholarships are to be awarded to qualified underrepresented minorities according to financial need. 
  • If there are no qualified underrepresented minorities, then the awards will default automatically to those with most financial need. The priority, however, will remain on recruiting and selecting qualified candidates that are from both an underrepresented minority as well as having demonstrated financial needs.
