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. The student will be notified of having received an award before the beginning of the fall semester.
