Graduate School Financial Aid Resources
Financial Aid is available for graduate school; most graduate students finance their education through a combination of funding sources.
Types of Funding
Assistantships are usually campus-affiliated work assignments (e.g. graduate teaching instructor, research associate) that provide an individual a stipend and often waive tuition and/or other matriculation fees.
Fellowships are typically granted to individuals to cover their living expenses while they carry out research or work on a project. Awards may be single or multiple-year. Awards are usually based on an individual's merit as measured by grades, GRE scores, publications, and letters of recommendation.
Grants are most often awarded to cover expenses associated with carrying out research or other specific projects, such as travel, materials, or computers.
Loans are available from the government and other private sources.
Scholarship awards are based on one or more of several criteria - merit, financial need, discipline of study, career goals or membership within a minority group.
