Special Education #MoveInMiami Project

The Department of Educational Psychology is excited to be partnering with the Office of Annual Giving and its coordination of Miami’s major day-of-giving campaign, #MoveInMiami. The campaign project chosen by the department is its Special Education Scholarship fund.

Educational Psychology established the competitive $4,000 scholarship in 2016 for new undergraduate students majoring in its Inclusive Special Education program. The Special Education Scholarship Award is presented annually to incoming first-year students, and is renewable for four years. This award has been given to over 50 students since the scholarship’s inception three years ago, and more students like Emma from out of state, have chosen to enroll as a result. “If it weren't for the Special Education scholarship, I would have likely not attended Miami. It made it a more affordable option for me,” Emma shared. 

Although the department has been able to self-fund this scholarship for the past three years, fewer new scholarships will be available next year without additional funding. Educational Psychology has set a goal of reaching 50 donors to contribute to the scholarship fund drive that culminates on August 22, first-year student move-in day. Please visit the #MoveInMiami scholarship fund page for more information, and consider donating to support future Miami students who, like Emma, will major in Inclusive Special Education.
