Just like undergraduate students, graduate students have the opportunity to apply for and accept finanacial aid to help fund their schooling. Find out more about financial aid for graduate students below!
As a graduate student — or a prospective one — you’re probably wondering how you can apply for aid or what type of aid you’re eligible for. Luckily, the process of applying for federal aid is pretty much the same as for undergrads: submit your FAFSA, review your Financial Aid Notification, and accept or reject aid.
At Purdue, research assistantships, teaching assistantships, fellowships, and scholarships are offered through the individual academic departments, with more information being available through the Graduate School. All fee remissions and stipends are considered as part of your financial aid award offer and offset your Cost of Attendance.
If you receive a fee remission, stipend, or funding from a source other than Purdue, be sure to report it on your myPurdue account.
If you’re in a Krannert program, your program may have additional costs.
