As a graduate student, it is worth your time to apply for scholarships. Scholarships defray your costs significantly, because they don't require repayment. New graduate students are eligible to apply for institutional (Carlow) scholarships. Both new and returning students are encouraged to apply for outside scholarships. Start your search by checking with professional organizations in your field. During your time at Carlow, also check MyPortal [login required] periodically; scholarship opportunities may be listed there under the Announcements or Financial Aid pages.
