Financial Aid - Graduate Students

UHCOP Competitive Scholarships & Fellowships

Based on funding availability in any given year, graduate students may be eligible for financial assistance through scholarships or fellowships within UH College of Pharmacy. Recipients are selected by the UHCOP Student Affairs Committee.

Each spring, applications for scholarships are solicited from all COP graduate students. A student may then submit an application for a scholarship, and the college Student Affairs Committee decides on the specific award given to a student, if any. A number of different scholarship funds have been established, each with specific eligibility requirements, such as merit, need, career goals, or others. The student will be notified of having received an award before the beginning of the fall semester. A few of the named scholarships awarded to COP graduate students are shown here (.pdf).
