Merit-Based Financial Aid
The university gives more than $9 million in financial support each year. If you have a strong academic background and plan to enroll as a full-time student in a degree program, you may be eligible for merit-based aid in the form of scholarships, assistantships and fellowships. Availability of merit-based aid depends upon your intended program of interest.
Types of Financial Aid
- Merit-based aid
- Distinguished fellowships and assistantships
- Office of Student Financial Aid — private outside scholarship
Applying for merit-based aid
There is no additional form to apply for merit-based aid other than your application for admission. Just check the box on the Graduate School application form to apply for tuition scholarships, teaching or research assistantships.
Complete the financial aid application for admitted students by the established financial aid deadlines.
Employees and Individuals Eligible for Tuition Remission:
Marquette University employees and their family members, and certain non-employees, who receive tuition benefits (such as faculty remission, employee remission, spousal remission, dependent/child remission, or non-employee remission) are not eligible to receive Graduate School-funded tuition scholarships in addition to their remission benefits. However, they can apply for and receive graduate assistantships if they decline their remission benefits, and meet all assistantship eligibility requirements as stated in the Rules and Guidelines for Graduate Assistantships.
