Financing your Graduate Education

Financing your graduate education is one of the critical factors when considering a graduate program. You want to ensure that you are getting the most out of your investment. Most graduate students at the Morgridge College of Education (MCE) require financial support to pay for their educational expenses. MCE awards more than $14 million annually in student financial assistance which includes various types of awards. Unlike student loans, these awards do not have to be repaid.
