Merit Awards, FInancial Aid and TuItion Payments

Merit Award

The department has one competitive merit award assistantship; it consists of a $12,000 research assistant stipend, full tuition waiver and health insurance coverage.  In addition, a full tuition waiver for an underrepresented minority student is available.  Both awards are competitive; for consideration, applications must be completed by March 1st. Our faculty also may provide assistantships or hourly work on research from their research grants when it is available; these assistantships are given to students on a competitive basis and are often offered to more advanced skilled students.  

Promissory Notes for Employer Reimbursement Tuition

The university has pre-established arrangements for students who are employed at agencies that pay for graduate education.  Students must sign a promissory note, in case the employer does not pay part or all of the tuition.  Please see the following website:  http://www.luc.edu/bursar/payment_options.shtml#ERP
