The priority deadline for applications is March 15 for Graduate Scholarships. Applications may be submitted after the priority deadline until July 15, but awards will depend on eligibility and the availability of funds.
Improving Your Odds- To make your application stronger, consider adding a letter of application or a letter of recommendation from a faculty member in your program to your scholarship form to make it stronger.
Eligibility- Only degree seeking students in good standing and admitted to a program are eligible for scholarships. Current graduate students must have a 3.0 GPA for consideration.
Credit Hour Requirements- If a scholarship has a credit hours requirement (e.g., six hours per semester), and completion of your degree requires fewer than the number of credits required for your scholarship, you can keep your scholarship and enroll in the number of credits required for completion of your degree. In this instance, however, your scholarship will be reduced to a maximum value of the cost of tuition and fees for the credits you are taking. For example, if you only need 3 credit hours to graduate, and your scholarship normally provides $1,500 per semester, it will be reduced in your final semester to the cost of tuition and fees for 3 hours.
Students who choose to take fewer than the number of required hours for reasons other than degree completion shall have their scholarships reduced to $500 per semester maximum.
Graduate Assistants- Graduate assistants generally are not eligible for institutional graduate scholarships other than those that are included with their graduate assistantships.
Length of Scholarship- These scholarships are generally awarded for ONE YEAR and must be re-applied for during your second year.
Non-resident Fee Scholarship- Reduces tuition to in-state level
Graduate Scholarship- $250 – $2,500/semester (Amounts awarded are dependent on funding available.)
