Miller Scholars Award

2017-18 Schedule 

A Miller Scholar is one who proposes and implements a high-quality project that will take a demonstrated track record in teaching and learning to a significantly higher level.

Solo and duo projects must enhance student learning. A maximum of two projects will receive:
  • A certificate of recognition from the President of St. Cloud State
  • A $9,000 budget per scholar, to implement a student-success project within the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning framework

The Miller Scholar Award was established by the generous donation of James W. and Marion Miller. The award is a joint effort of CETL, Office of Academic Affairs and St. Cloud State University Foundation.
