MURP students are eligible for the following types of scholarships. Award recipients generally must maintain full-time status, defined by the university as a minimum of 8 credits per semester. Most MURP courses are 3 credits, so full-time status means the student is typically registered for three courses, for a total of 9 credits. Please note that the priority application deadline to be considered for financial aid is February 1st.
- Dean’s Scholarship: Dean’s Scholarships are awarded to the incoming professional masters students based upon academic achievement. To be eligible for consideration, a student must be in the top one third of the program’s incoming class. No separate application is required beyond the admissions application materials. Students selected for the Dean’s Scholarship will be notified by their academic department or Dean’s Office. Students who receive these forms of assistance may have reduced eligibility for need-based aid.
- Graduate Student Scholarships (GSS): These scholarships provide a predetermined tuition discount by awarding a specific number of graduate semester hours in free tuition. There is no work requirement.
- Double Husky Scholarship: All NU graduates are eligible to receive a 25% Tuition Scholarship to attend a masters program on a full-time basis. Visit the Double Husky Information Page for additional information on this program.
- Martin Luther King, Jr. Graduate Fellowship: The MLK Jr. Graduate Fellowships are administered through the African-American Institute. These awards are offered annually to African-American students in full-time graduate programs as long as the student demonstrates satisfactory academic progress and financial need as determined by Student Financial Services. Applicants must complete the financial aid process, as well as an application available from the African-American Institute.
- AmeriCorps Scholarships: Up to five scholarships annually will be awarded to AmeriCorps alumni who enroll in one of our masters programs full-time. Each scholarship covers tuition for three semester credits (most courses are three-credits). In addition, the application fee is waived for all AmeriCorps alumni.
- Veterans Programs: In addition to standard VA benefits, veterans may be eligible for additional financial aid through Northeastern. Veterans who have 100% eligibility under the Post 9/11 GI Bill (Chapter 33) are eligible for additional aid through the Yellow Ribbon Program, which makes up the difference between the NU tuition and the Chapter 33 benefit. Northeastern has invested $2 million in the Yellow Ribbon Program which is also matched by the VA. For more information visit the Yellow Ribbon Program and Veteran enrollment page.
