Academic Scholarships

The graduate school is committed to recruiting and retaining a diverse student body that incorporates multiple perspectives, cultures, learning styles, and ways of knowing. We offer scholarships to further this goal and assist qualifying students, both prospective and continuing, who need financial support to pursue their graduate education. Scholarships are awarded by individual departments. Full tuition scholarships are not available

Scholarship awards and application processes vary per program. Program application materials and financial need may be used to select scholarship recipients, so timely completion of the program application and the FAFSA or the ORSAA* is strongly recommended.
