Financial Support

Graduate students may obtain financial support from several sources.

  • The University of Cincinnati provides merit-based graduate awards in the form of tuition scholarships (known as Graduate Incentive Awards (GIA) and Graduate Assistant Scholarships (GAS)), graduate assistantships (including teaching and research assistantships), and program-specific scholarships and fellowships.
  • Scholarship and fellowship support is also available from a diverse collection of external sponsors at the local, state, national, and international levels.
  • Need-based support may be obtained from federal and state sources.
