Scholarships and Financial Aid

Our Commitment to Helping Eligible Students

We award about $50,000 in aid every year and provide individuals with a range from $2,000-$5,000 in support.

Requirements for scholarship offers include academic performance, character, extracurricular activities, leadership potential, and professional interests. Financial need may be a criterion for some scholarships.

Graduate students may also receive financial support through fellowships/traineeships, teaching assistantships, research assistantships, service assistantships, federal work-study programs, and loans. Learn about the types of aid available for graduate education.
