Graduate Financial Assistance

While graduate financial assistance awards may differ from those available to undergraduate students, the Meredith College Office of Financial Assistance and individual graduate programs offer a variety of resources to students in need.

In order to start the financial assistance process, we recommend all students complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) online at In addition to any grants a student may receive from his or her program of study, FAFSA applicants will also automatically qualify for low-interest federal student loans. To learn more about the individual grants available or the federal loan program, please review the information for each area of study below.

Applications for financial assistance are available at the Office of Financial Assistance in Johnson Hall. You may also apply online at
