Graduate Scholarships

General Eligibility

Eligibility includes graduate students who will be enrolled for 9 hours or more.

Students may apply for all scholarships for which they are eligible, but only one scholarship is awarded per person. Be aware that some scholarships include an essay with additional length requirements.

Applying for scholarships does not guarantee receipt of one. Scholarship dollar amounts are awarded for the 2020-21 academic year. For example, a $1,000 scholarship will be given in two increments: $500 for fall 2020 and $500 for spring 2021.
