Graduate School Funding

  • Inquire about graduate and/or teaching assistantships, as well as fellowships, offered by the programs to which you apply. These funding opportunities are most often school-specific and may involve teaching, research, or administrative work. Be sure to check with each institution about the application process and deadlines, which could involve applying to specific professors, departments, or offices.
  • For federal assistance and loans, applicants may complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
  • The federal government offers the Public Service Loan Forgiveness program for individuals who will pursue a full-time public service job.
  • The U.S. Dept of Education Office of Federal Student Aid provides resources to help you prepare and pay for school.
