Financial Aid and Other Funding

Students in fee-based programs 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. Fee-based students 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 assists UW graduate students in their search for funding opportunities for graduate school-related expenses.
