CREATE Scholarship Program

The CREATE scholarship program, sponsored by the SCDE Office of Special Education Services, is pleased to announce a new initiative to prepare individuals who hold a non-education Bachelor's degree (any major) with no teaching license to become professional special education teachers. 

The first of its kind in the State, Lander University's fully online MAT (Master of Arts in Teaching) degree in Multi-categorical Special Education leads to initial SC educator license to teach in SC public schools.

CREATE will award guaranteed scholarship funds to a Cohort of 18 individuals who will begin their MAT program coursework in the Spring 2022 semester. Other Cohorts are slated to be awarded funds in 2022-2023 and the following years.
