Ohio Team Scholarship
In partnership with Ohio's K–12 educators and in recognition of the important contribution they provide to the citizens of our state, Miami University offers the Ohio TEAM Scholarship. This scholarship significantly lowers the cost of professional development and/or earning a graduate degree by providing a 50% reduction in the instructional, general, technology, and Metro (bus) fees.
To be eligible, the student must be an educator who is a full-time teacher or administrator in an Ohio school, holds a professional license or certificate issued by the State of Ohio, is a resident of Ohio, and the degree or course being taken must be part of the educator's approved professional development plan.
If you would like to take graduate-level courses but do not intend to pursue a graduate degree, you can apply for admission using "continuing non-degree graduate" status. After you are admitted, you can earn an unlimited number of graduate hours within an indefinite period of time.
Applying for the Ohio TEAM Scholarship
To receive the Ohio TEAM Scholarship, you must first apply and be accepted to the Graduate School, even if you are enrolling only for workshop credits.
When submitting your TEAM Scholarship application, you will need to include your Ohio teaching license or certificate and your teaching contract for the year you are applying. (Do not submit any original documents as they cannot be returned.)
Your TEAM Scholarship Application is good for one academic year - fall semester through summer sessions. TEAM Scholarship Applications must be received by the Office of Student Financial Assistance prior to your first day of enrollment.
