Master’s Students:

All students are encouraged to apply for need-based financial aid. The funds available to the University are determined by the number of applicants. The Office of Financial Aid in conjunction with the Graduate School awards financial aid in the form of grants and work-study jobs on the basis of both need and merit criteria.

Due to limited funding sources, we cannot offer funding packages to Master’s students through the School of Education.

Doctoral Students:

Financial support is awarded on a competitive basis, as part of the admissions process. All students who are admitted receive support in the form of funding packages that include tuition, an allowance for health insurance, and some combination of fellowships and/or graduate assistantships.
