Scholarship Connections

Merit-based Scholarships

Merit-based scholarships, ranging from $1,000 to $4,000 per year, are available to new, full-time graduate students. These scholarships recognize an individual's previous academic achievement and are awarded to students with a 3.5 or higher undergraduate cumulative GPA at the time of admittance to a Roosevelt University graduate program. The Office of Admission will review all eligible candidates for scholarship awards. No scholarship application is required. Merit-based scholarships are renewable and require that the recipient maintain a 3.8 cumulative GPA and full-time status while enrolled in the graduate program.
