Types of Aid
Our goal is to ensure you understand the resources available to help supplement the costs of your education. Along with scholarships or assistantships/fellowships from your academic department, loans and work-study are commonly included in aid offers. Your financial aid offer will likely include a combination of these different types of aid.
Grants & Scholarships
Grants and scholarships for graduate students are offered through individual graduate schools.
Work-study is a need-based financial aid award that allows students to work on campus to earn money to help pay for educational expenses and minimize borrowing, all while developing valuable skills and experience.
Loans are commonly an essential way to finance your graduate education. We're here to help you navigate the application process and borrow responsibly.
For students taking classes during the summer term, we offer financial aid on a limited basis.
Aid for Undocumented Students
While financial aid for undocumented students is limited, there are scholarships available from DU, the State of Colorado and private organizations.
