Master’s Student Partial Tuition Scholarship
The Graduate School is pleased to invite nominations for the Master’s Student Tuition Scholarship for the 2022-2023 academic year. This is a partial tuition scholarship program with a goal of recruiting new master’s students to the university in the context of UofL’s Strategic Plan 2019-2022 to grow graduate enrollment.
This is a two-year scholarship that will be funded both by the Graduate School and by the student’s academic program. Students who are eligible for resident tuition will receive $3,500 per 10-month academic year, and non-resident students will receive $7,000 per academic year. The Graduate School will fund the student’s first year and the program will fund the second year. Awards will be divided equally across the Fall and Spring semesters each year.
Eligibility: Students must be admitted in good standing to a master’s degree program no earlier than the Fall, 2022 semester. To maintain eligibility, students must take a full course load each fall and spring semester (at least 9 hours each semester), continue in good academic standing and make satisfactory progress towards the degree. Students in fully-online programs or graduate certificate programs are not eligible for this award, nor are employees of the University of Louisville.
Nomination Process: Programs should nominate students who they believe have a high likelihood of success in graduate school, and should include a brief statement (200 word limit) explaining their enthusiasm for investing in the student and the assets the student will bring to the program. The department chair or the program’s director of graduate studies is expected to endorse the nomination and commit to the promise of tuition support in the student’s second year.
