The School offers three awards to graduate and undergraduate students:
- Charlie M. Curtis Scholarship (agricultural education undergraduates)
- H.C. Sanders Fellowship (graduate travel award)
- Betty C. Harrison Scholarship (graduates & undergraduates)
Graduate students may apply for assistantships. These awards are competitive, and selection is based on merit. Letters of application for assistantships should be sent to the Director of the School of Human Resource Education.
Students engaged in graduate study in the School of Human Resource Education and Workforce Development at either the M.S. or Ph.D. levels may apply for an assistantship. Graduate assistantships, when available, are offered to qualified students on a competitive basis. The nature and period of an assistantship will be determined by factors prevalent at the time the award is made.
Students on an assistantship are expected to maintain a grade point average of 3.0 on a scale of 4.0 and register for at least nine semester hours during the fall and spring semesters and six semester hours for the summer term.
Human Resource Education and Workforce Development graduate assistants are provided office space in the Old Forestry Building. At the beginning of each semester, office assignments will be made by the Director of the School in consultation with the faculty. Keys to the offices and building will be issued. Each person issued a key is responsible for the key and the proper use and security of the building. Each office has a computer that is available for the assistants to use.
In addition to assistantships, the University offers financial aid to graduate students through fellowships, scholarships, work-study programs, grants, and loans. Information concerning these programs may be obtained from the Graduate School.
