Are scholarships or other types of funding available for your graduate program?

Students who completed their bachelor's degree at DePaul are eligible for the Double Demon discount of 25%.  Graduate Assistantships are also available for qualified students in the Division of Student Affairs.  Ideal candidates are/were undergraduate student leaders and/or have other Student Affairs-related experiences. Eligible, prospective graduate students may apply for these positions, as they become available, by checking the Student Employment or Human Resources webpages. Each office in Student Affairs will manage/post their own G.A. positions, so interested students should check with the respective offices.  Some language programs also offer more scholarship information on the respective language resource webpages, so please scroll through these to learn more about any potential scholarship opportunities by language program.
