Financial Aid - Graduate Students

External Scholarships and Fellowships

Students may find additional scholarship information at the UH Office of Scholarships & Financial Aid, the UH Graduate School or from a variety of external sources. Students are encouraged to avoid using sites or companies that charge a fee for service; however, if students choose to use these companies, first check with the Better Business Bureau about the specific company/organization.

Below are some general online resources offering information about financial aid opportunities.
