Financing Graduate School

Try these suggestions to help you finance your advanced degree.

  • Complete the required Free Application for Federal Student Aid. A paper copy is available from the Student Financial Management Office or you can complete the application online.
  • Apply for teaching and research assistantships.
  • Research and apply for foundation/association fellowships and for grants for special purposes.
  • Inquire about programs that waive out-of-state fees.
  • Check to see if your employer will pay for all or part of your graduate education. Local organizations and families may provide scholarships.
  • Perkins Loans and college work-study may be available through your graduate school; Stafford Loans may be available through your bank.
