Roosevelt offers a partial merit-based scholarship for incoming students with GPAs that are 3.5 and above (on a 4.0 scale). In order to be eligible for the award, applicants must submit a completed graduate assistantship/scholarship application and two graduate assistantship/scholarship recommendation forms.
Graduate students can apply for the merit-based scholarship, private departmental scholarships, and can be awarded a provost scholarship based on specific eligibility.
It takes at least a month for information to be processed.
Yes. In order to be eligible for the scholarship you must be enrolled in at least six credit hours.
No. Providing you maintain an adequate GPA (3.8) and are enrolled in at least six credit hours per semester your award will be automatically renewed.
As an international student you are eligible for all Roosevelt scholarships as long as the scholarships are not funded through US state or federal programs such as grants.
Awards may be reduced if “gift funds” become available from other sources.
If the department offers partial assistantships, there is an opportunity to receive a combination of funds. For example, a student could receive half an assistantship (which would pay for nine semester hours total of tuition over the year) and a $1,000 scholarship per semester. This will vary by department.
Your funds will be credited by the Office of Financial Aid at the beginning of the semester as long as you are enrolled in the proper amount of hours.
Although we do not award full tuition scholarships, we strongly encourage students to seek additional funding by applying for one of our many assistantships.
Federal student loans and Federal Work Study programs are available. Review the financial aid website for more information about applying. You can set up payment plans with the Office of Student Accounts.
Scholarships generally will not be qualified retroactively (after first-term enrollment), but special awards may be given to select students as recommended by the program.
