Merit-Based Scholarship Opportunities for Outstanding Candidates:
(U.S. citizens and Permanent Residents only)
PLEASE NOTE: Applicants receiving financial assistance from other sources do not qualify for this award: for example UCSD Employees receiving tuition reduction for their first 18 units (CREST), Fellows, Medical School students receiving tuition assistance, and Industry employees receiving tuition reimbursement.
Your work experience and overall admissions profile can qualify you to receive financial assistance to help offset the cost of your MAS degree.
Each year multiple merit awards will be given out that cover up to 50% of tuition expenses per recipient.
THIS IS A MERIT BASED (NOT FINANCIAL NEED) AWARD
To apply for the award, please send the department a detailed description of your career and personal accomplishments, and why you feel you are deserving of such an award. This can include academic successes, professional successes, and personal achievements and stories.
(Max 500 words).
