Financial Support for Your Graduate Education

Financial support for graduate school may come in the form of scholarships, grants, loans, teaching or research assistantships.

The types of aid that will be available to you as a graduate student may differ from those you were eligible for as an undergraduate. Explore Types of Aid and consider making an appointment with a Financial Aid Advisor to discuss resources you can use to find scholarships, grants, and loans.

As you explore graduate schools, look for information about financial support and contact them to ask questions.
