Financial Support for Higher Learning
Graduate students at the University of Denver have a number of funding opportunities available to them, from scholarships and assistantships to research and travel grants. Our graduate students receive nearly $56 million in institutional financial aid each year, funding exploration and innovation in every department.
If you have questions about funding opportunities or financial support services, don't hesitate to reach out to us.
Grants & Scholarships
Most funding from scholarships, grants and fellowships is offered on the basis of academic merit and awarded by a college, department or program, while others are awarded by external agencies. Funding is applied directly to your educational costs without a service or employment requirement.
Graduate assistantships give an average of 570 students the opportunity to gain valuable experience while engaging in research, teaching or work in academic or administrative offices on campus. Contact your graduate program directly about available opportunities.
Some graduate students seek out private scholarships and awards to fulfill unmet costs. This can be a time-consuming process, so we recommend starting early.
Graduate Travel Grants
Graduate Travel Grants support student travel to present, perform or compete at professional academic conferences or venues, or to participate in internship positions outside the U.S.
The Office of Student Employment connects DU students with employers on campus and in the Denver area. We're committed to promoting job opportunities that help you meet educational expenses and gain valuable experience.
