A limited number of tuition scholarships may be awarded to students without assistantship appointments who have unconditional admission status and are in good academic standing. Such scholarships may be awarded for up to 9 graduate semester hours per semester (6 semester hours in the summer term). Students receiving tuition scholarships are bound by the same rules as graduate assistants with respect to course withdrawal, contingency of the award on satisfactory performance toward the graduate degree, general eligibility, and special department requirements.
The departmental faculty select the proposed awardees from qualified applicants. An appointment letter, similar to a graduate assistantship letter but without assigned duties, is prepared by the department chair and sent through the college dean to the graduate dean for approval at least one month prior to the start of the semester in which the scholarship is proposed.
Additional scholarships may be available. Please visit our financial aid website to learn more: http://www.uah.edu/admissions/graduate/financial-aid
