Simmons 25 by 25 Initiative

Your gift to this scholarship program enables the Simmons School of Education and Human Development to recruit and retain outstanding graduate students.

 

Although more than 60% of Simmons students receive scholarship support each year, affordability remains the top barrier for educators who want to pursue an advanced degree. By 2025, the Simmons School seeks to address more unmet need by securing 25 new scholarships of $25,000 or more – raising $1 million for graduate student scholarships.

 

We invite you to take part in this critical initiative. Shape the future of education and school leadership in Dallas and beyond by supporting extraordinary teachers who impact countless students.
