"If it weren't for our Grants-in-aid program, I wouldn't have had the access I do now to such an amazing education. Thanks to my professors, I've been building on my existing strengths and experience while developing new skills and gaining exposure to new ideas. Each class I’ve taken has provided opportunities for both personal and professional growth.

Through both my work and studies at this University, the countless people I've met have positively influenced who I am today. I am grateful that I've had this opportunity to utilize the University's Grants-in-aid program and I look forward to my graduation."

Procedure, deadlines and restrictions

For reimbursement to occur, the grants-in-aid application form must be submitted each semester for departmental (if an employee) and HR (employee and eligible family) approval by dates listed in the deadlines tab. Please review the restrictions and exclusions tab to verify course and/or program eligibility. You will also want to carefully review the automatic tax withholding tab to see if you or your family's grants-in-aid will result in additional, automatic tax withholding.
