To celebrate the creation of the University of West Florida's School of Education, the School has created a scholarship opportunity to champion our educator alumni.

UWF Celebrates Teachers

The School of Education supports its teacher alumni long after they cross the stage at graduation. We know that teachers who receive training and mentoring stay in the classroom. Providing educators an opportunity to enroll in graduate studies at UWF means they are continually informed of evidence-based best practices, and that directly impacts our children.
