If you are interested in being considered for departmental financial assistance (scholarships, fellowships, and assistantships), you must complete the scholarship section of the online application. Certificate students are not eligible for these awards, however applicants to the Post-Baccalaureate Studio Art are considered for merit awards.
The deadline for applying for departmental financial awards is the same as the application deadline for your program. Please visit the Tuition and Financial Aid page for information about award availability, which varies by program.
Award notification is posted with an offer of admittance through the online application system and sent to the mailing address on your application either with the acceptance letter, or shortly thereafter. Award offers are official only when made in writing and signed by the Dean of the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences or the Dean for Graduate Education in the School of Engineering. Offer letters from an academic department are not considered official.
