Types of Aid Available to Graduate Students
Georgetown University graduate students may be eligible for grants, scholarships, assistantships, and fellowships awarded by the Georgetown University Graduate School, federal, state, and private programs; and/or loan and work-study programs coordinated through the Office of Student Financial Services.
Georgetown University offers eligible graduate students funding under several student loan and employment aid programs, such as, the Federal Direct Subsidized/Unsubsidized Loan, Federal Perkins Loan, and the Federal Work-Study programs. Eligibility for the federal loan and work programs is based upon financial need. However, most private loans and the Employment Referral Service are not based on financial need. Due to limited funding, Federal Perkins Loan and Federal Work-Study is not offered to all applicants.
Private Educational Loans are offered by many lending institutions to assist students in meeting college expenses. Emergency loans are available to assist students in meeting unanticipated expenses in exceptional circumstances.
Through Georgetown University's monthly payment plan all or a portion of a student's bill may be paid in monthly scheduled installments over ten months. Further information is available from the Georgetown University Office of Student Accounts by calling their payment plan representative at 202-687-7100.
If you are a veteran, visit the Georgetown University Student Veterans Association (GUSVA) website for information about educational benefits and support programs, including the Yellow Ribbon Program. Students who are eligible to receive educational benefits through the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs may obtain information and assistance from the Georgetown University Registrar's Office in Room G-01, White-Gravenor or by calling that office at 202-687-4020.
