There are many ways to help finance your graduate education. Please click on the following links for more information about Scholarship, Fellowship, Grant, Assistantship, and Financial Aid Opportunities.
Out-of-State Tuition Waivers
Carr Graduate Scholarships and/or other competitive scholarships of $1,000 or more, which are awarded to full-time out-of-state and international students, will normally qualify such students to pay the tuition and fees required of Texas residents.
In addition to the Carr Graduate Scholarship, the university has available both tuition scholarships and tuition and fee scholarships for which graduate students are eligible. They are made available on the basis of academic ability and financial need and are awarded by the University Financial Aid Committee. Only graduate students who plan to carry at least nine semester hours are eligible. Scholarships are awarded for one academic year with the provision that the recipient meet the academic standards established for such scholarships. In order to have the scholarship renewed for a second academic year, the student must reapply.
