The Double Husky Scholarship helps Northeastern alumni finance their graduate education by offering a 25 percent tuition discount on more than 120 eligible programs.
Rejoin the Pack
Alumni with a bachelor’s, master’s, or doctoral degree from Northeastern are automatically considered for the scholarship when they are admitted into an eligible graduate degree or certificate program—there is no special application required. Upon acceptance, applicants receive a letter indicating the tuition discount that applies to their program.
If a student is offered other grant aid from the university, he or she will only receive the scholarship of higher value. Those completing pass-through degrees—such as Freshman-Entry Doctor of Education, Freshman-Entry Doctor of Physical Therapy, or a PlusOne accelerated master’s program do not qualify for the Double Husky Scholarship.
The Double Husky Difference
For Northeastern alumna Julie Taylor, it was the Double Husky Scholarship that finalized her decision to enroll in her Master of Public Administration, saying, “For working adults with families like me, it makes it possible to continue your education, get a job, and set an example for your own children.”
