Graduate Financial Aid
Government-sponsored and private education loans
The Office of Financial Aid can help you review financing options through government-sponsored and private education loan programs. U.S. citizens and permanent residents are encouraged to apply for financial aid by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). For information, please visit www.studentaid.gov.
These loans are unavailable to international students.
Although the majority of the University’s on-campus employment opportunities are reserved for full-time undergraduates with eligibility for Federal Work-Study funding, some part-time student positions may, on occasion, be available to full-time graduate students. Contact the Office of Financial Aid for further information.
Employer-sponsored tuition assistance
Bryant University accepts payments directly from a number of employers who have tuition assistance programs. In other cases, students may be eligible for reimbursement of educational expenses. Contact your employer for details.
Most scholarships offered by Bryant University graduate programs are based on academic merit. All applicants are automatically considered for these awards after being admitted to one of the University’s on-campus degree programs. Scholarships are currently not awarded for any online graduate degree or certificate programs.
For priority scholarship consideration, the application deadline is April 30 for fall, March 31 for summer, and November 30 for spring.
Bryant Alumni Scholarship
Bryant University alumni applying for the 2023-2024 academic year are automatically considered for a tuition discount of up to 30% for on-campus programs. Specific scholarship amounts vary based on academic program. Please contact the Graduate Programs Office at firstname.lastname@example.org for additional information.
School of Business Graduate Assistantships
Graduate assistantships offered by the School of Business are based on academic merit. Graduate assistants typically work five to ten hours a week in a variety of academic and administrative departments doing research, program development, and project coordination in exchange for some level of tuition remission. Applicants are automatically considered for assistantships upon admission to a School of Business graduate program.
Physician Assistant Program
Loan forgiveness may be available for physician assistants who qualify. Some programs in Rhode Island include the State of Rhode Island Department of Health – Health Professions Loan Repayment, and the Rhode Island Student Loan Authority – Primary Care Practitioner Loan Forgiveness Program.
