The School of Education (SOE) Retention Fund will create an assistance award program for students experiencing unforeseeable financial hardships.  This program is to be available to students majoring in any of the SOE teacher preparation programs and funds will be disbursed to students in hardship situations of last resort when other financial avenues have been explored.

Jack and Fran Kaufman Scholarship for Student Teaching established by Cecelia Box The fund is established to provide financial support to students seeking professional teaching licensure during the semester of their full-time student teaching. This fund is in recognition of and hopes to alleviate the challenges and sacrifices students face carrying the full-time commitment of student teaching, which, for so many, conflicts with their ability to support themselves.
Trauma-Informed Pedagogy & Training Fund Metropolitan State University Denver School of Education (MSU Denver), Resilient Futures, and the National Mental Health Innovation Center (NMHIC) are working together to build the capacity of teacher candidates to develop resiliency and understand and address trauma triggers in school environments with pre-school and school-aged children; and secondary trauma in themselves and their coworkers. New teachers will enter the workforce better prepared to address their own needs and the needs of the children and families they serve, instead of gaining this foundational knowledge “on the fly”, or after they have been in the field for many years.
