CEHD Names Fall 2019 Scholarship Recipients

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 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 award nearly $60,000 in scholarships to deserving undergraduate and graduate students for the fall 2019 semester.

Student Success Envoy logo

The CEHD Student Success Team has concluded that a successful student is one that is: informed, engaged, and present.

Student Success Envoys are the embodiment of this success formula - they are informed of university and college happenings and processes, engaged in classroom and extracurricular activities, and present physically, mentally, and emotionally, pausing often to reflect on their collegiate journey.

Members accepted into this organization will be charged with thoughtfully delivering this “student success formula” as they serve as ambassadors for the College and provide faculty and staff with insight into the CEHD student experience. Student Success Envoys should possess strong leadership skills to support them in fulfilling varying and diverse roles such as assisting with CEHD signature events and functions, including Welcome Back events, the Student Research Symposium, Degree Celebrations, and more. 

Do you think you have what it takes? If so, here’s your chance to stand out amongst peers while gaining valuable skills and experience for your resume and networking with CEHD faculty and staff.
