The department awards two types of financial assistance:

Diverse domestic students may qualify for aid through the Diversity Enhancement Pathway.

In addition to these awards the university funds several loan programs for graduate students. Qualified students may obtain federally guaranteed student loans and participate in the federal College Work-Study Program. Small short-term loans, supported by funds donated by alumni, faculty, and friends of the university, are also available.
