Lonnie Said:

What are some good graduate scholarships?

We Answered:
Yellow dots mean graduate scholarships/fellowships are available. You didn't mention what your focus was so that's about all I can do for you. Just look and see if you can find anything within your field.

Scholarships generally aren't as readily available to grad students, and financial aid comes in the form of fellowships. Often, in fellowships you work on a research project, submit a worthy research paper, or win some kind of award at an academic event to earn your money. There aren't many handouts like there were in undergrad school.

Many universities will fund you completely. For example, You don't really have to pay a dime for tuition and books if you go to the University of Minnesota for Political Science. They're a very exclusive program so they offer each of their PhD students 5 years of full financial coverage, with the possibility of additional fellowships as well.

Find a good school with many fellowships available, and you'll be fine. If you can earn a little on the side doing research papers for additional fellowships, these are also good for your resume in the long run.

Hope that helped a bit!

Anyone know the best way to look for scholarships/grants for graduate school?

We Answered:

You already know about one of the scholarship search sites, but there are several others. Try all of them, no one has ever scholarship. has links to all the major scholarship search engines and some other resources.

Have you been interning anywhere? Talk with the HR dept to see if they have any resources you may tap into.

Contact the local service organizations, Lions Club, Rotary, etc.. even the local chambers of commerce. Many of these organizations either offer scholarships directly or may have resources they can point you toward.

Of course, always go to your departments chair and ask if they know of businesses that have provided sponsorships in the past.

Finally, if you absolutely can't find a scholarship or simply don't have the time to wait for one to come through you can try some of the student loans provided for grad school students. Chase bank offers one that works like a federal loan in that payments are not due until you are out of school. You can reach them through also you can try Student Loan Advisors at Although I'm not sure they offer a student loan specifically for grad school.

You can apply online and get approved while still looking for a scholarship. This gives you some security in knowing if you get in a bind you'll at least have a plan 'b'.

Elmer Said:

What are some resources for finding financial aid/grants/scholarships to attend graduate school?

We Answered:

For graduate school you would only be eligible for Stafford Loans, and in some instances Federal Work Study. You can find out more information regarding loans at

For outside scholarships you can search these links:

College Board Homepage


Free Scholarship Search

Gates Millennium Scholars Program

Also, talk to a financial aid officer and/or a graudate coordinator at the school. Some schools have all graduate programs go through the financial aid office and some are separate. See about any departmental specific grants/scholaships for your major. Good luck!
