Financial Aid and Other Funding

Students in the program can apply for various forms of financial aid to help cover their educational costs, including federal financial aid, scholarships and loans. For more information, visit the fee-based programs page of the UW Student Financial Aid website. Students in fee-based programs are not eligible for tuition exemptions or University grants.

Graduate Student Funding

The Graduate School’s Office of Fellowships & Awards is a resource for students seeking information about fellowships, awards and assistantships. The Graduate Funding Information Service (GFIS) helps UW graduate students in their search for funding opportunities for graduate school-related expenses. GFIS representatives host workshops, post funding announcements and meet one-on-one with students.

Some employers will cover all or part of the cost of a professional education. Check with your employer to see if such a program is available.
