College of Education

Service. It’s what we do. From teachers to healthcare providers, our students live to help and serve others. Emma knew she wanted to become a teacher and then fell in love with the 4 Paws for Ability program at UK where students socialize dogs to get them ready to become service dogs for children with disabilities. Her roommate, Ayla, also wanted to serve and is studying kinesiology with plans to become a physician assistant.

But these students and many others can’t achieve their career dreams of service without your help. The College of Education General Scholarship Fund supports scholarships for our students and gives them the resources they need to pursue a quality education, discover and nurture their passions, and realize their potential for a meaningful and successful career of service to others.
