How to Finance Graduate School
There are many forms of financial aid for graduate students awarded or facilitated by Indiana University. A number of options are linked from this page. Check with faculty and administration within your department for details and programs that may not be linked from this site.
Decisions regarding awards are made by individual graduate programs and involve a stipend plus tuition and health insurance. The amount and length of these awards varies according to the award and the graduate program. Applicants are automatically considered for some fellowships and most assistantships.
