Various types of financial support are available to graduate students, like you, through university-based scholarship and graduate assistantship programs and the generosity of our university donors.
More about Graduate Admissions Financial Aid
You can participate in research projects or assist faculty in executing teaching assignments for a semester as part of a graduate assistantship.
Graduate students who accept the assistantship may not be employed elsewhere without prior consent of the advisor and director for graduate programs.
The assistantship generally requires 20 hours of service a week and the tuition reimbursement is considered taxable income in accordance with current Internal Revenue Service regulations.
The Anniversary Scholarship was created during the school's 150th anniversary to celebrate the long history of excellence in engineering education at Widener by supporting merit-based graduate scholarships for thesis students. The fund began with contributions from faculty and stand, and has grown with contributions from alumni and university donors. It's not a traditional scholarship and will be awarded at the end of the year.
