Graduate Student Scholarships
Fund your future with scholarships
We’re here to make your education even more affordable. Hamline University recognizes the important role that scholarships serve in helping graduate students finance their education. We have generous scholarships run by individual programs of study, as well as tuition discounts for eligible students. When combined with other financial aid planning, our scholarships can help you take a step closer to the future you envision for yourself.
Some of the scholarships we offer for graduate students are:
