Graduate Scholarships

Partial tuition scholarships are awarded to matriculated students in select programs by the Office of Graduate Admission and are made on the basis of the student’s cumulative undergraduate grade point average; the cumulative Master’s degree grade point average is used for doctoral students. (International candidates’ undergraduate grade point averages are converted to the American grading system.) All applicants for admission are automatically evaluated for scholarship eligibility and students do not need to complete a separate scholarship application.

The eligibility requirements for the graduate scholarship are as follows:

  • Cumulative undergraduate grade point average of 3.0 or higher
  • Registration in at least 6 credits per semester (including summer)
  • Enrollment in select degree, certificate, and endorsement programs
  • Students in the Speech Language Pathology and Physician’s Assistant programs are ineligible for the Graduate Scholarship

Scholarships are available during the academic year as well as the summer. Scholarships may not be combined with Monmouth University tuition remission benefits, Second Master’s Scholarships, Math/Science Educator Scholarships, and the senior citizen discount. However, the Graduate Scholarship may be combined with a Graduate Assistantship or employer tuition reimbursement as long as the total amount of aid does not exceed tuition and fees (fees do not include books). Scholarships are renewable throughout the duration of the student’s enrollment, provided that the student maintains continuous enrollment for fall and spring semesters and a minimum grade point average of 3.00.

The Graduate Scholarship has been discontinued for students entering master’s-level programs in Summer 2023 and beyond.  Graduate students who began their enrollment prior to Summer Session A 2023 will continue to receive the scholarship that they are otherwise entitled to for the duration of their current academic program, provided they meet all eligibility requirements and maintain continuous enrollment.

Doctoral scholarships will be awarded to qualified incoming students who maintain continuous enrollment in their current program and otherwise meet scholarship eligibility requirements.
