• Scholarships for Graduate Students

    GRADUATE SCHOLARSHIP AWARD

    Alumni Donna Ault Jacobson

    In 1998 Monmouth University established the Graduate Scholarship Award to provide scholarship assistance to students who have demonstrated outstanding academic achievement in the completion of the baccalaureate degree. Partial tuition scholarships are awarded to matriculated students by the Office of Graduate Admission and are made on the basis of the student’s cumulative undergraduate grade point average. Graduate scholarships are also awarded to eligible international graduate students. Awards are based on undergraduate grade point average. (International candidates’ undergraduate grade point averages are converted to the American grading system.) All applicants for admission are automatically evaluated for scholarship eligibility; the student need not complete a separate scholarship application.

    Awards are available during the academic year as well as the summer. Awards may not be combined with the following forms of assistance: tuition remission, Second Master's Scholarships, and Math/Science Educator Scholarships. However, the Graduate Scholarship may be combined with the following as long as it does not exceed tuition and fees (fees do not include books): senior citizen tuition discount, graduate assistantships, and employer tuition reimbursement. Scholarships are renewable throughout the duration of the student’s enrollment, provided that the student maintains continuous enrollment for fall and spring semesters and a minimum grade point average of 3.00.

    SECOND MASTER’S SCHOLARSHIP

    Partial-tuition scholarships are available to students who have completed a master's degree program at Monmouth University and who return to the University to matriculate for a second master's degree, graduate certificate program, or graduate endorsement program. Award amounts vary as a function of tuition and the number of credits for which a student enrolls. Awards may not be combined with the following forms of assistance: tuition remission, Graduate Scholarships, and Math/Science Educator Scholarships. However, the Second Master's Scholarship may be combined with the following as long as it does not exceed tuition and fees (fees do not include books): senior citizen tuition discount, graduate assistantships, and employer tuition reimbursement. Scholarships are available during the fall, spring, and summer terms. All applicants for admission are evaluated for scholarship eligibility; the student need not complete a separate scholarship application. Scholarships are renewable throughout the duration of a student's enrollment, provided that the student maintains a minimum cumulative grade point average of at least 3.00.
    Please note: This scholarship is not applicable to the DNP program.

    MATH/SCIENCE EDUCATOR SCHOLARSHIP

    The University is committed to providing support for graduate degree candidates who intend to become teachers in math and science. Graduate students who hold a teaching certificate in any subject area may take course work toward an additional certification in math and/or science and qualify for a scholarship. Those who do not hold a teaching certificate, but who are interested in pursuing certification in math and/or science, are also eligible. However, in addition to the subject area courses, the student must also complete the Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) program. Scholarships are available during the fall, spring, and summer terms. All applicants for admission are automatically evaluated for scholarship eligibility; the student need not complete a separate scholarship application. Scholarships are renewable throughout the duration of the student’s enrollment, provided that the student maintains a minimum grade point average of 3.00.

    ENDOWED SCHOLARSHIPS

    The University offers a small number of sponsored and endowed scholarships to graduate students, which have been made possible through the generosity of friends of the University. All enrolled students receive consideration for these awards, and there is no student-initiated application process. The Financial Aid Office, except where stipulated by the donor, will select the candidate that most closely matches the donor-established criteria. Scholarship recipients will be notified via a scholarship award letter. (Note that students in the MSN. program must complete the FAFSA and a scholarship application available from the Marjorie K. Unterberg School of Nursing and Health Studies. Scholarship recipients will be selected by the School of Nursing faculty members.)
