Miller Scholars Award


A Miller Scholar proposes and implements a project that enhances student learning and takes a track record in teaching and learning to a significantly higher level.

The Miller Scholar will receive:
  • A certificate of recognition from the President of St. Cloud State
  • A grant 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.
