New Graduate Student Scholarship

The College of Graduate Studies offers merit scholarships every semester (Fall, Spring and Summer) to new incoming domestic and international graduate students on a first come, first serve basis.

The merit scholarships that we award in the Fall and Spring semesters do not require a specific application. All graduate/doctoral degree seeking students who get admitted into a program are automatically considered. If they meet our GPA and GRE score scholarship criteria, then they are offered a scholarship, if available. The number of scholarship offers also varies every semester, depending on the funds available.

The details of our scholarship awards are generally the following:

  • Fall awards: $500 in the Fall semester and $500 the following Spring semester + in-state tuition during the first fall, winter intersession, spring, spring intersession and summer (for out-of-state/international students).
  • Spring awards: $500 in the Spring semester and $500 in the summer semester+ in-state tuition during the first spring, spring intersession, and summer (for out-of-state/international students).
  • Summer awards: $500 starting in the Fall semester and $500 the following Spring semester + in-state tuition during the first fall, winter intersession, spring, spring intersession and summer (for out-of-state/international students).

Once incoming students receive the offer, they must sign the official scholarship award letter. Students need to meet certain requirements to maintain the scholarship, which will be included in the award letter.
