The Keith and Sheila Goldring McCoy Scholarship is awarded using the interest from the endowment started by Dr. Sheila McCoy, former chair of the Liberal Studies Department and founding Dean of CEIS. This annual $1000 scholarship is for Liberal Studies students who plan to teach.


Minimum Requirements:      

  • All Liberal Studies majors who plan to teach in elementary schools
  • Juniors and Continuing Seniors
  • Minimum GPA 2.85

In her commitment to liberal education and teacher preparation in California, Dr. Mc Coy created this scholarship to help Liberal Studies majors pursuing a teaching career. Understanding the challenges that Cal Poly Pomona students face, this scholarship gives special consideration to single parents, but it is not a requirement to apply or receive the award.

The 2017-18 application is closed, and the announcement for 2018-19 applications is forthcoming.
