Alternate Sources of Funding

Students are strongly encouraged to apply for external sources of funding concurrently with their application to the program. Unlike undergraduate admissions, where most applicants apply for admission first and then apply for aid, applications for national scholarships and graduate financial aid applications often have their deadlines at the same time or prior to program admission dates

For more information on grants, fellowships, internships, and other external funding opportunities, please visit the Graduate School’s page on Grant Finding and Writing Resources, the Office of Student Financial Services’ page on Outside Scholarships, and the Graduate Career Center. Students interested in more information on federal loans and grants should contact the Office of Student Financial Services.

If you would like to speak to a financial aid counselor, find your assigned conselor in the directory here (linked here: based on the first letter of your last name.

Students are also able to find job opportunities both on and off campus. For on-campus opportunities, search the Student Employment Office database (linked here: Please note that gradaute students may work up to but no more than 20 hours/week total in all on-campus jobs.
