Graduate students may be eligible for assistantships and/or scholarships. University-based graduate assistantships and scholarships are awarded by the individual academic departments. Funding is limited and highly competitive.
Graduate assistants typically complete up to 20 hours of weekly service for the academic department in exchange for a tuition waiver and stipend. Please note service hours and award amounts are different for each department.
The application process for graduate assistantships and scholarships also varies by department. Please visit the program website for application deadlines and more information.
Double Demon Scholarship
Any newly admitted student who has graduated from DePaul (has a degree conferred - bachelor's, master's or doctorate) will be eligible to receive a Double Demon Scholarship, as a 25% automatic discount, for any GRADUATE coursework they take after the degree is conferred. This includes degree coursework, certificate coursework and non-degree coursework. It does not include coursework from the Center for Professional Education (CPE), Institute for Professional Development (IPD), coursework in a doctoral program or a master of fine arts (MFA), Music, Theatre, Law and a few other select programs.
