Financial Aid

The EdLF Department has very limited financial aid for its students. Students interested in obtaining financial aid should submit the Educational Leadership Application for Financial Aid by July 15. Students may submit their application any time prior to the deadline; however, the School Leadership Program Committee reviews applications and allocates the financial aid in October to help support tuition for the following winter semester. Students should be aware that receiving funding for one year does not guarantee that it will continue for the following year. 

Students are encouraged to seek other sources of funding, including the following:

  • McKay School of Education Scholarships: Limited scholarships are available through the McKay School of Education, based on financial need. The online application deadline for scholarships for the following fall semester is March 31. For more information, see the webpage or contact Education Support Services at (801) 422-3426 or by email at

  • District Sabbaticals: Contact your district to learn about sabbatical opportunities, including criteria, application procedures, and deadlines.

  • Personal Loans
