Scholarships are a form of gift aid that doesn’t require repayment. They are generally awarded on a variety of factors, including academic achievement, talent, athletic ability, leadership, geographical location, the field of study, or financial need.
Some scholarships come directly from the graduate department, some we have to apply separately through private sources. The students are recommended to apply for other scholarship and fellowship funds which may be available through outside sources. The state or federal government, private donors, and corporations are a few examples.

Scholarship applications are accepted on an ongoing basis and are considered individually for scholarship eligibility.
