One of the most enjoyable tasks the Office of Student and Academic Affairs performs each semester is facilitating a number of scholarship programs that are funded by, or in the memory of, alumni of the College of Education and Human Development and philanthropists committed to student success. While our outstanding student recipients receive funds to help defray the cost of attending Mason, the faculty who are charged with reviewing applications benefit as well.  They get a glimpse into the inspiring lives of our applicants and the potential future contributions they will make to their fields of study.  The College of Education and Human Development was thrilled to recognize the undergraduate and graduate students below during the fall 2021 semester. Congratulations to all of our scholarship and award recipients, and many thanks to our generous donors for making these awards possible!
