At The University of Denver graduate students may qualify for the following types of financial aid:
- Grants and Scholarships
- Federal Aid including Loans & Work-Study
- Assistantships including GRA/GTA/Fellowships
Types of Aid
Students typically receive two primary types of financial aid; federally funded aid and grant and scholarship funded aid. Students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to be considered for federal financial aid (federally funded student loans, grants, and work-study).
You are considered for college funded financial aid from The Morgridge College of Education (MCE) at the time of admittance. You do not need to complete a separate application to be considered for MCE aid. MCE financial aid can include scholarships, fellowships, and graduate assistantships.
Scholarships are usually awarded and administered by the Morgridge College of Education (MCE Awards) while loans and work-study are administered by the University of Denver Office of Financial Aid. Students may also receive grants and scholarships to attend DU from external agencies and foundations.
You may be eligible for employer tuition benefits through your company or organization (contact your Human Resources department for more information) or for military benefits if you, your spouse, or parent is currently serving in the military or is a veteran.
DU employees, spouses, or dependents may be eligible for a tuition waiver. See the Human Resources website for more details and eligibility requirements.
