Scholarships and Grants

Salus University College of Education and Rehabilitation often has scholarships and student stipends available to support the study of matriculating U.S. citizens.  Matriculating students are those who apply for specific programs and intend to earn their degree or certificate.

These scholarships are most often funded through the U.S. Department of Education, Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services, and either the Rehabilitation Services Administration or Office of Special Education Programs.  Students enrolled in one of our off-campus programs may have additional tuition support made available through contributions from the Department of Education of their state of residence.

Scholarships average between 50% to 100% tuition coverage in one of the four areas of study available through the University’s College of Education and Rehabilitation

Students studying in one of the University’s off-campus programs may have additional tuition support made available through contributions from the student’s own state department of education.

U.S. citizens who plan to be either full or part-time students are encouraged to inquire as to availability of scholarships at the time of their application for study.  At this time, there are no scholarship funds available for students who wish to register for just one or a few courses, although individuals are encouraged to take courses for continuing professional development or to refresh or update knowledge and skills.  Scholarships are not available to non-matriculating students. 

Scholarships from the Rehabilitation Services Administration and Office of Special Education Programs have a work payback requirement. Payback agreement manual and forms are provided to all students who are eligible to receive scholarship assistance. This agreement will become a contract between the student and the funding source.
