Finding grants and scholarships

The cost of financing a degree program can be a real challenge for many students. Multiple sources of funding are available and range from government agencies, employers and foundations to academic departments and schools. Financial assistance can be divided into three broad categories:

  1. Federal Aid – funding awarded by Student Financial Services, includes loans and Federal Work Study.
  2. Grants, Scholarships and Fellowships – funding awarded by your individual department that does not need to be repaid.
  3. Earnings – wages paid for research, teaching or other work performed during enrollment.
