English Graduate Programs

Partial Tuition Scholarships

For the fall, winter, and spring quarters the M.A. programs in English and Writing and Publishing offer Partial Tuition Scholarships (PTS) to recognize outstanding academic achievement of students in the department's two graduate programs in English. Partial Tuition Scholarships provide a partial reimbursement for tuition paid for up to two courses per quarter taken toward the M.A. in English or M.A. in Writing and Publishing degree. [NOTE: PTS awards can be applied only to courses needed for the MAE/MAWP degree.]

You are eligible to apply for up to two Partial Tuition Scholarship awards if:

  • You have already completed at least two courses in the MAE or MAWP
  • You are enrolled in one or more classes for the current term
  • You have a cumulative grade-point average of 3.7 or higher
  • You are paying your own tuition and fees (without financial assistance from any grant or scholarship agency or employee reimbursement program—student loans are okay.)

Please find the current PTS application form on Ex Libris. If you have questions about Partial Tuition Scholarships or the application process, please e-mail Jan Hickey, assistant director of graduate programs in English, at jhicke11@depaul.edu.
