    Introduction to Scholarships for Graduate School

    Throughout my time running Access Scholarships, I have spoken to students of all kinds about scholarships that fall into all sorts of categories. One of those categories is scholarships for graduate school students.

    Depending on your area of study and intended career path, graduate school can range from being an absolute necessity to simply being a helpful addition to an already earned undergraduate degree.

    Regardless of where graduate school stands for you on this spectrum, it's important to know that scholarships for graduate school are out there to help you fund your journey.

    While graduate scholarships tend to be slightly less common than college scholarships (for undergraduate students), that doesn't mean there aren't some great opportunities out there for you to apply for! Further down in this post, we'll highlight some great scholarships for graduate school students. Keep reading for the good stuff!

    Types of Graduate Degrees

    There are many different types of graduate degrees out there. I recently published this blog post which outlines most, if not all, of the various types of undergraduate and graduate degrees that are out there.

    One important callout I want to make is that some graduate scholarships will specify if they are open to all graduate students or only masters students, whereas others will not. If you're a doctoral student and you are not sure if a scholarship is open to you, I highly recommend reaching out to the provider directly to clarify if you're eligible before starting your application.

    Now, back to the topic at hand!

    Without further ado (as I always say in these posts), keep reading for our short yet diverse list of great scholarships for graduate school students.

    At the end of the day, I hope that one or more of these scholarships is up your alley! If not, it's no sweat! The best way to find scholarships for graduate school is to head over to our scholarship search. Using this tool, you can get more personalized results based on your area of study, home state, and more.

    If you’re still in the process of applying to graduate school and comparing programs, I also recommend checking out each program’s financial aid page. That way, you can see what scholarship opportunities each may offer and also compare costs while you're there.
