Courses SLU Will Consider for Scholarships
Ccourses eligible for scholarships must be focused on the disciplinary or interdisciplinary academic content of the 1818 course(s) the 1818 instructor has been approved to offer. Typically these are courses offered as part of established master’s and doctoral degrees in the specific discipline/interdisciplinary area.
Courses in related disciplines, and courses focused specifically on the teaching of the disciplinary/ interdisciplinary academic content of the respective 1818 course(s), may be considered per the discretion of the appropriate SLU academic department.

Determination of the applicability of the proposed non-SLU graduate course is the purview of the approprate SLU 1818 Faculty Liaison.
