Financial Aid & Support
Paying for graduate school
Our graduate students receive nearly $56 million in institutional financial aid each year through funding options from several of our departments. Our University also provides graduate students with presentation and research grants, health insurance scholarships and doctoral fellowships.
Our students have the ability to take out federal student loans in order to fund their education. In addition, external scholarships can help graduate students to pay for their education.
Our Available Funding
Graduate students have a range of resources for financial assistance, some of which come from the academic units themselves. These can include teaching and research assistantships, scholarships and funding for research. Consult with your program’s faculty and administrative assistants for information about discipline-specific funding.
