The Graduate School offers a limited number of application fee grants. Fee grants are directed to 1) applicants who have participated in pipeline programs specifically designed to prepare students for graduate studies, OR 2) domestic (non-international) applicants who have grown up in a low-income family. We are unable to offer fee grants to applicants for any other reason. Occasionally, individual graduate programs offer fee waivers to particular appilcants who do not meet the above criteria; interested applicants can contact their intended graduate program directly regarding this possibility. Please note: the School of Business has its own criteria for granting fee waivers. For more information on those waivers, contact Will Wait (firstname.lastname@example.org) for MBA programs or Belle Heberling (email@example.com) for the Business PhD program.
