Funding Opportunities

Financial assistance may be available to eligible students in the form of federal grants, fellowships, scholarships, loans, institutional teaching assistantships, and the on-campus Federal Work-Study Program, which supports research assistantships. Sources of financial support include:

Student Loans

The primary source of graduate student aid is the Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loan from the U.S. government, which is not need-based. The Federal Direct Subsidized Loan, Federal Pell Grant, and other need-based federal and state grants are not available at the graduate level. The Federal Direct PLUS Loan is also available to graduate students; it covers the cost of attendance (determined by the school) minus any other financial assistance received.

Graduate Assistantships

Students in the Ph.D. program may be eligible for competitive graduate assistantships through the Federal Work-Study Program. Work-Study students are typically assigned to a particular faculty member in the Ph.D. program, where they are expected to assist with ongoing research studies. The Federal Work-Study Program application is available through the AU Financial Aid Office.

Teaching Assistantships

Advanced Ph.D. students may have the opportunity to apply for competitive teaching assistantships in the undergraduate program, based on approval by the student’s primary academic advisor and departmental need. Students assigned a teaching assistantship are expected to initially shadow an instructor in an undergraduate degree program for a period of one semester. Following successful completion of the training period, students may be eligible to teach the course independently, based on undergraduate department needs.

Provost Research Support Scholarships

Two types of Provost Research Support Scholarships are currently available to doctoral students at Albizu University: the Research Expense Scholarship and the Travel Scholarship. The purpose of the scholarships is to facilitate the scholarly development of academically talented students. They are awarded to full-time doctoral students on a merit basis to provide financial support for research expenses and travel. 

The Research Expense Scholarship provides funding for specific research expenses, including equipment, supplies, payment for observational raters, participant reimbursement, local research travel, and other appropriate expenses. This award does not pay for travel to conferences or for stipends. 

The Travel Scholarship provides funding for students to travel to national professional conferences to present single authored or co-authored papers or posters. Travel awards are limited to $500. 

Application materials are available through the Office of the Provost. Applications will be reviewed twice a year, on September 15 and January 31.

Institutional Scholarship

The Albizu University Institutional Scholarships provide assistance to AU students with financial need and recognize current and incoming students who demonstrate academic excellence. Up to $1,500 is awarded per scholarship. If you are a full-time student enrolled in a degree-granting AU program, have satisfactory academic progress and a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0 at the undergraduate level or 3.5 at the graduate level, and can demonstrate financial need, apply now by completing and submitting the Institutional Scholarship form with all required documentation.  Scholarship applications are due by June 30 each year.
