The UVA School of Education Employee Funding Experience
Since its inception in fall 2015, many employees have continued their education with the School of Education and Human Development in individual courses or as students in our master’s or doctoral degree programs.
When I decided to go back to school for an Ed.D. in Higher Education, I had to learn to balance the needs of work, home life, and classes. The [School of Education and Human Development] Educational Benefits program has been a wonderful resource that, when combined with the UVA tuition benefit, makes working towards a degree obtainable.

I had wanted to pursue a master’s degree in Higher Education for a few years. When I learned that the School of Education and Human Development was providing an additional educational benefit to UVA employees, it made it much easier financially to enroll in the part-time program.
