College of Education, Health and Human Services'

  Summer Experience for Emerging Diverse Scholars (SEEDS)

"Planting seeds for advanced degrees!"

June 16-18, 2014

Application Deadline: Friday, April 4, 2014

About SEEDS:

The College of Education, Health and Human Services' has initiated the Summer Experience for Emerging Diverse Scholars program to promote graduate education in our college at Kent State University to prospective students of diverse backgrounds, specifically African American, Latino American and Native American. The program allows participating students to meet face to face with their future faculty members, students in their program and other graduate programs, get introductions to the area and local attractions while ultimately qualifying for funding that contributes to their education at Kent State University.

Program Requirements:

Students must be seeking admissions into a graduate program for Fall 2015 at Kent State University maintaining a 2.75 GPA (or higher for some programs). In some cases, there are programs that are still considering admissions for Fall 2014, for a list of those programs, please visit our website. All programs considering Fall 2014 admissions, require the completion of the online application for consideration for the SEEDS program. 

Students must be willing to provide their own transportation to and from Kent State University in Kent, OH. There are two nearby airports: Hopkins International in Cleveland, OH and Akron-Canton in Akron, OH.

Benefits:

All students who participate will receive at least a $1,000 Dean of the College of Education, Health and Human Services Scholarship up to full tuition through an offering of a Graduate Assistantship to assist with funding their graduate degree in one of our participating graduate programs. Students must be admitted and enroll into one of the eligible programs to receive any of the funding resources available for participants.
